Fun for walking, running, biking, xc skiing, meditating, picnicking, and recharging. I've seen people fishing, sailing, floating overhead in hot air balloons,...More

This lake actually covered several mines that had copper, lead, silver and iron.... plenty of benches along the bike, walking trail. Picnic tables through, a boat ramp and a beautiful setting.

We have been run/walking the paved loop around the Lake for years. Bald Eagle and Great Blue Heron can often be spotted. This is a great place to run/walk but the one time I rode my bike, I disliked it very much. Bikes yield to...More
