“Nice Walk Close To Town”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014

Costs $5 to park there but the walk was finished in 40 minutes! Nice environment. Next time I will eat and park at German restaurant by lake - it looked interesting.

“Pretty lake in Pines”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

Great hiking path around lake, & lake small enough to hike around in short period of time. Has a little store & restaurant, & a camping area, which we didn't use, but convenient to have them there.

“If you like to hike/walk, then come to Lynx Lake.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

We had a wonderful hike around the lake. We got there around 9 am on a weekend and it wasn't super crowded. The lake is quite pretty and there were many people fishing from the shore or out on boats, canoes, or paddle boats (all of which you can rent). There is a detailed map at the parking area which shows the hiking trail. You pretty much can't get lost since it just goes completely around the lake and the lake usually remains within site. Part of the trail is paved but the part that is not is still easy to walk on. It was a wonderful hike and great way to start the day.
