Easy hike

Some parts of the trail have a lot of debris, but the lake is a stunning view! Easy hike for beginners like me

An Amazing Place To Ride Or Hike.

Lake Needwood and Lake Frank are part of this hike and bike trails although they're not connected they're five minutes apart. Lake Needwood is more public and on the weekends expect it to be full with people. Lake Frank tends to be isolated yet I find to be better at being a place to relax and unwind. Be careful of snakes in lake frank.
