I love walking around Lake Wilson. It scenery is beautiful and the walk vigorous. There are hills, bridges, and gravel. You should try it if you are not afraid of bridges. It is rather long.

The bridge making the path around the lake a circle is open and lovely. Great for walking or biking. I am already enjoying doing circles instead of horseshoes!

Lake Wilson is small, but a nice place for a walk, fishing, small powerboats or kayaks/canoes. There is also a disk golf course laid out around one side of the lake.
