Additionally, the lake is surrounded by the popular hike and bike trail, which is approximately 10 miles long and serves as a social hub for runners, walkers and cyclists. The surface is mostly crushed granite and is quite flat, so it's very easy on the legs and welcomes visitors to bring their dog along.
