Very enjoyable and peaceful trail to bike with the whole family. Highly recommended.

First time on this trail today. Nice walk in the woods close to home. Lots of loons on the lake today. I was surprised that there were cabins on the trail that seemed to be in use.

Went to this trail for the first time today. It is a great little trail for walking, running, or a smooth bike ride. Had fun!
