Trail
“This is a perfect hike that you can knock out in an hour or 2. It has amazing views of the lake the entire time and is a very easy trail to hike. We also love it because it is dog-friendly. You are supposed to keep the pups on a leash, but you can use your own discretion. We let them off if it's not super busy. ”
