Birding · Fishing · Lake · Wildlife
The day we hiked this trail was in early April, the lake was up and it was very muddy in some spots at the north end. Waterproof boots are a must. Once we got past that area, it was a much better surface and a very nice hike, but we were on edge every 20 feet or so as water snakes kept bailing off the side of the lake into the water. We got a pic of one of them from a distance and don't believe it was venomous; we think it is a plain-belly water snake. The snakes were all north and a little bit south of the swinging bridge.
There is another area that you may have to go around using connectors if it's flooded; I'll mark it on the trail. Overall, this is a very nice trail and very full of wildlife.
