An easy recreational trail that winds around the lake.

Park hours year round are sunrise to sunset

Description

Start in the main parking lot, head north to pick up the trail as it begins to wind around the lake to the northeast. Follow the well-maintained trail around the lake. The trail passes through wooded and grassland areas. It is generally protected from the wind from being in a valley, except when running across the dam.
