Beautiful lake setting perfect for a peaceful walk, enhanced by wildlife and wildflowers.

Nice Length

Beautiful to walk around the lake. Though I wouldn’t call it a hike it’s a nice long walk (or shorter run but you can easily do the loop multiple times). Paved path, fishing spots and a playground, it has something for everyone!
