“A great place to take a quick hike or seat near the lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I take my dogs for walks when it is really hot or in the fall. It is a wonderful place, but take your bug spray after it rains.

“Quiet place to fish or hike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

You can fish at the Lake as long has you don't have a motor on your boat. You will see canoes and kayaks frequently on the Lake and people having a picnic lunch while waiting for the fish to bite. There are hiking trails of various lengths, which are good for families with small children who want to enjoy the outdoors.

“A Quick Hike or Bike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Great for a quick hike, bike or catch and release fishing. It gets pretty muddy toward the back edge of the trail. Bring bug spray there are a ton of mosquitoes between the end of spring until the end of all..

“Wonderful Hiking Trails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

We take our dog hiking here on a regular basis. Lots of nice trails that allow you to take it easy or go for a more strenuous hike. Beautiful view of the lake.

“fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

very nice people. My dog got in the pond and took off and some people in a kayak brought her back. The pond is in medium condition. Love hiking and fishing there.
