Comments: I have hiked this trail a few times. I went back last Sunday to check it out again. The trail is fairly level throughout. It starts by the parking area. There are several covered shelters that can be rented or used, first come, first served, for picnics and parties. There is also a kids' splash area, with built-in sprinklers. Next to the kids' area are the restrooms and water fountains. The trail is kind of circular. It leads you from a wooded area, out toward the lake, where there's a canoe launch. It extends down the north side of the lake, and loops back around to the wooded area. The trail is mostly cinder, with a few patches of concrete. On the far west side of the park, there is a more rustic trail, that is made out of wood chips and dirt. There were quite a few people out on Sunday afternoon, and many of them had their dogs with them. This is a popular spot for fishing, kite flying, and bringing dogs.
