Lily Lake is so beautiful. It has a trail all around it and doesn't take very long. Sometimes you see wildlife but the views are wonderful. Small parking lot.

A nice lake and trail that is accessible. Went there with a friend that needed a wheelchair and we had a very nice walk around this pretty lake with lovely views.
