“A paved loop around lake.”— Michelle Kras
The middle half of the loop is more sunny (nice for bird watching in the lake, but you'll miss the shade in the humid summer months). This lake is the perfect habitat for egrets, herons, turtles, and ducks. As you continue around the lake, trees start to shade the path once again. The path will turn into a boardwalk for a short distance, then returns to pavement near the end of the loop. There are benches located throughout the loop.
This loop is perfect for birdwatching and exercise...too bad that it's next to the highway as there is noise due to traffic. Bike racks, grills, playground, and pavilions are located near the path.
**Although the area is frequented by residents during the weekend, it's an isolated area and may be better to not run alone if the parking lot is empty.**
