This hike is within George Roger's Clark Park, a small but beautiful park that features numerous trails and historical buildings (houses, tipis and even a fort!).  It is free to get in. To get to the lake you will enter the park and drive straight through the first parking lot and up the large hill and turn left when the road forks to park at Hosterman Lake.  The trail itself is a bit hilly (for Ohio), but I'd still say it's easy and offers great views of the lake!  We saw a Great Blue Heron and a few fishermen enjoying time on the lake.  I highly recommend it for a quick and pretty hike!
