“A quick route following a well established trail that provides access to great lake views.”— John Shuttlesworth
After coming around the cove you find yourself at fork in the trail where you can follow either direction to loop back around and then retrace your original path back out to the parking lot. This trail is also utilized to reach the primitive campsites at the state park. Overall, it's a nice run that provides great views, excellent birding (including a wildlife viewing blind) and even features a composting toilet at the halfway mark near the fork in the trail.
