Good trail for any type of hiker. Good views of the lake and a quite hike, only saw one other hiker. Watch out for poison ivy as their is plenty of it. Overall a good hike.

Great, simple trail! Definitely easy for beginners if you don't mind spending about 2 hours outside. Definitely a great hike if you want something with varied views (forest, lakeshore, open meadow) without a lot of strenuous uphill. Also very quiet and not likely you'll run into other hikers. Lots of campsites scattered along the trail too!

This is absolutely the best spot near Lawrence. Also the only reason it's not rated higher is two people who positively reviewed the trail but did not rate it... :(

What a hidden gem. It was quiet, only two cars in the lot and someone tent camping near the entrance. The walk started out with a large flock of Robins hopping about from tree to tree. I had no idea they cameto Kansas this early in the season. Lots of other birds, great landscape, a very clean trail and primitive campsite's where people have gathered stones and built some best wind breaks with them. It was nice to be able to walk down to the lake and if you wanted to follow along the shore you could. I'll be back!

I had a nice brisk walk at around 30 degrees. The trail was nice, and as mentioned quiet. There is potable water at the head of the trail, and very accessible camp sites.

One of my favorite trails. Has a nice mix of woods, prairie fields and lake shore. There are campsites along the trail and I have backpacked in with my daughter before. It's a nice kids hike, either part way or the whole trail. There tends to be a lot of ticks and poison ivy though, so be prepared!

There also is primitive camping at the trail head. It's not very heavily used, and free!

I love this trail! It is fairly easy to walk, and there are several fabulous primitive camping spots with fire rings, both cooking and campfire. The thing I really loved was that we heard no distant roar of traffic. Only nature. We saw only three people although there were about 5 cars in the parking lot when we began the hike.

I LOVED this trail, mainly because when I hiked it, I barely saw another soul the entire afternoon. It's a gorgeous trail that heads down to the lake and around a nice peninsula and back to the campsite area. A few stream crossings and open meadows break the monotony of the trail.
