  • Gorgeous state park that had many different trails and areas for running and jogging. The main path brings you to the lake. If you stay around the outskirts of the lake it will be about 1.25 miles. Wish this place was closer for me. Love it.
  • Really nice, easy quiet walks with pretty scenery. Great at any time of day, but it really shines around dusk. Hundreds of dragonflies, butterflies and fireflies, deer and a great view of the sunset. Perfect if that's what you're looking for.
