Decent hike, but not much to look at.

The lake had work being done on it, looks as if it was drained. Very low. The hike wasn't bad, we came across 5-6 bikers and 3 hikers. Didn't like this one as much as other trails in this area.

Good for jogging and biking. Took me an hr with a dog and slower female hiker. Pretty populated with visitors.
