Hike Summary: Trail starts at fishing dock and goes left across a grass covered dam covered with wildflowers. It then follows a dirt trail around the lake through the tree line. The trail is easy but has some hills, rocks, and roots which cover parts of the trail making it a bit rough on the ankles, the trail at last emerges from the forest to a small beach next to the campground and there is a bench for you to rest on just before returning to the fishing dock where it started.
