  • My husband and I took the 2.3-mile paved trail around the lake as a welcome break after a long drive. It was very peaceful and beautiful there. Lots of friendly dog-walkers as well as a few joggers.....  more

  • I can’t believe I live so close to this gem. I love running the different courses, and there’s some elevation/inclines to help with training. Rent out kayaks, canoes, a local swimming hole (seasonal), camping, and so many trails to hike/run. The fishing is great too! It may vary of course, but it’s such a great experience. Great family fun for everyone.
  • Nice calm atmosphere. The Rough Go trail is exactly how it sounds like. The entire trail is paved with rough rocks. You will find many cyclists along the path. I was able to see deers, wild turkeys, geese and California King snake along this trail. Not the most exciting, but good for a good walk.
