Visiting from out of town & like to check out hiking trails & this is a beautiful place to explore. Wish I would have downloaded a trail map but I ended up hiking to Spring Lake and back on accident.

Annabel is a big park with several entrances and a wide variety of hikes. It's easy to do a 5 to 7 mile loop here. Most hikes skirt the Lisanjo lake at some point and this lake always makes a beatiful vista
