This is a nice area for hiking and picnicking. It has a short hiking loop around the small lake with a covered bridge and an old log cabin along the way. There's also a nice picnicking area close to the entrance.

Beautiful day for a leisurely walk through the woods around a lake. The trail is only 1 1/2 miles, only took about an hour. Will definitely come back.
