We enjoyed a pleasant stroll on the lake loop hike, despite overcast weather. The leaflet with points of interest marked out was good too. Recommended.

There's just something about the woods in winter and ice on a pond! This is such a beautiful walk/hike around the pond; about 2 miles. It's relatively flat so an easy/moderate walk and good for dogs. In the winter you will need sturdy boots with...More
