It’s more of a local neighborhood trail. We waited about 20 minutes to get a parking spot as space was very limited, which has been my experience in the past. While everyone we met was very pleasant, there was a ruckus in the parking lot when one car cut the line. About half the walk was an exposed fire road though you get continuous views of the lake. I took my kids (9, 6) and they were able to do it fine. However I was constantly on alert for mountain bikers given my kids, so probably the last time I’ll be visiting.

Recommended this one to family, they let me know that they really injoyed the hike except for the fact that it was paved most of if not the entire way. However it was described as rolling hills and "cool" temperatures. They noted that the are is HUGE and there are other hiking opportunities.
