This is a great place to get your trail legs, I have been here 5-6 times. It has several trails to choose from and the longest and most challenging is 8.4 miles. There are no great elevation changes but some hills. I like to come here, but when you're near the road the sound of traffic can ruin the solitude and the is a scout camp with a gun range nearby, so the sound of guns firing is not uncommon. When you get to the far side of the lake it is quite peaceful. So if you want a hike of any length this is a good spot.
This is my favorite trail. It has everything. Great exercise and a challenging terrain, beautiful scenery and solitude. I would recommend without hesitation.
