  • Great 6.5mi hike which is pretty close to home. Trail is fairly well marked. I will be back to trail run it.
  • Awesome place to go hiking. It’s about 6 miles and takes about 3.5 hours to complete. Be aware of the blue paint marks on the trees. They’re a little faded.
  • Awesome lake until late July, then The algae blooms ruin it till following season!
  • Superfund Lake to be on
  • Clean and beautiful lake, ideal for swimming, canoeing/kayaking, boating, tubing, waterskiing, wake-boarding etc
