A nice view on a paved trail. Lots of ducks and geese on the lake. I took the loop twice, making a solid 4 miles. This was my first time there, and while I had passed by on many occasions previously, I wasn't sure exactly how big it was--the earth dam blocks the view from the street. The parking lot on Millbrook is small, but people seem to come and go regularly. It's also not that well marked--if at all--so you could easily pass by without realizing it. However, the giant earthen dam is unmistakable. It's the only such structure on Millbrook, so once you know that, it's pretty easy to find.
