Great scenic hike around lake. Lots of rock, wear boots next time. Slightly elevated trail. No shade and heavily populated. 3.7mi

The trail actually ends before the end shown on the track on the website but it splits near the end to go to 2 spots overlooking the lake. 2.7mi — 3h 15m

Nice trail but very popular on weekends or holidays. We did it on MLK day 2019 with MANY others. Trail actually splits at the end to go to a couple of spots that overlook the lake. Jan 28, 2019
