10 dollar entrance fee, but the hike is pleasant. Lots of wildflowers still when I went. Lake is only a few feet from the trail, with many opportunities to take a dip if it gets too hot. Generally a good walk.

Completed trail in early February 2012. Weather was warm. Took my two little ones (10 year old girl and 12 year old boy - the red heads). Really easy trail. Nice and quiet. Spent the day snacking and fishing, but didn't catch anything. There is a 10 dollar fee to enter.

Easy hike for fall, winter, and early spring. Summer can get too hot.

Be careful of the mountain bikers going up and down the trail.
