Overview

A flat, easy, paved path around a lake that rewards you with great views.

Description

This trail takes you around a nice lake. There are plenty of benches to rest on and a nice gazebo to eat lunch or just sit and take in the view. There is easy access and plenty of parking at the trailhead. The way-finding signs along the way make it easy to find your way. Being such a popular place, please do your part to leave it better than you found it and pick up any litter you find.

Flora & Fauna

There are cattails and flowers in the spring and summer. The lake is stocked with small mouth bass and catfish for fishing. You will see a wide variety of birds enjoying the lake and its surrounding trees.
