This place is awesome! You can hike around the whole lake in about 4 hours...lake scenery from the hilltops on both sides makes the hike worth every minute of it. One area really steep going down, but it can be avoided if you have bad knees. Lake activities are in abundance as well...picnics, kayaks, swimming, rentals, and much more. Park stores on each side of the lake for food, souvenirs and products. This is a wonderful place to visit.
