    Very easy ride consisting of level smooth double track trail.
    The trail only goes around one half of the lake and there are
    no alternate routes that I could find. If you diverge much from the trail you will end up in someones yard and they probably wont be happy to see you.

    The scenery is the best part of this trail.
    No motorized boats are allowed on the lake so the entire area
    is nearly silent.
