Easy hike, free parking, washrooms near by, can see the Mars Bombers across the lake and the petroglyphs are extremely well preserved. Worth a visit.

There is a short (1/2 mile) walk to get o the petroglyphs, you then walk onto a pontoon tethered to the lake shore to see the petroglyphs. Definitely worth the walk.

These petroglyphs which date back thousands of years are fascinating. Sadly, time is taking its toll (weather and lake water). It would be good if some group could take steps to prevent further deterioration.

A short flat walk through the trails along the water , suitable for all walking levels and wheel chairs that can manage the light gravel trail. Great for a quick dip in the water in the summer off a small dock with a ramp (not...More
