This is a nice hike with no elevation changes. The hike gives you a good mix of woodsy terrain and lake side terrain. The only negative is that the trail becomes esentially the lakeshore for half of the trip. This would be fine if the shoreline was clearly defined but it isn't. We found ourselves hopping from rock to rock in several marshy and stinky areas. Expect to get wet/slimy shoes during the hike. The near bouldering aspect of the hike was fun and unexpected. This hike is not for those who expect a clearly defined and signed hike. The hike could become more enjoyable if it were more developed and signed on the lakeshore portion of the trail. We would do the hike again but just be prepared for a more "off-road" experience.
