This was an unplanned hike. I was driving along the lake, saw the sign, and decided to do a short walk with my dogs before resuming my road trip. Signs are well-marked to this place and there is no fee. A toilet is by the trail head. The main trail is the Hertz trail listed as 3.1 miles long, which... 更多
The lake is quite large and had a wonderful beach nearby. You just have to watch out for all the goose poop. I brought my dog with me and she enjoyed chasing balls in the water.
