A really nice hike in the woods. Summit views are beautiful! Trail well marked and has some hills. A nice big parking lot, or can park for free outside of the park and walk in. Not many people on the trail when we were there.

This trail is well maintained, well marked, and is relatively short. I went on a weekend that was 90-degrees, yet up in the trees it felt like 70s so don't let the heat deter you. The trail wasn't as crowded as I expected and people...More

The hike is relatively easy although it does start off going uphill and feels never ending. The view at the top are stunning and would much recommend as a half day activity

Great fun and exercise for hikers of all levels. Go early to avoid crowds but it’s great even mid day. Lots of dogs and people of all ages.

This is a pretty heavily trafficked trail, but there is plenty of room to get around people if needed. Nicely groomed trail with a bit of a climb making it a great workout. Plenty of parking is offered.

Took my 3 kids 10,7,3 to do this trail - was challenging for the two oldest but keeping the motivation of the view (and a cupcake) gave some motivation - the backpack to carry my youngest was really needed. You should expect it to be...More

This hike was beautiful! The hike wasn't too long or strenuous and it was easy to get to with our rental car. The views from the top were amazing considering how short the hike was (less than 2 miles each way). It was a little...More

Hello Danielle -- The lake does go down a bit in summer and fall but it should be doing very nicely after recent rains. Yes, the trail can be busy of weekends, particularly if pleasant weather. We hike it year-round, often... More
