We walked around a large part of Lake Harriett. Lovely homes, great weather, worked up a great appetite. Fall was definitely in the air.

There is a paved walking path with great views of the lake. The path is shaded and there is a separate path for bikers, so you can relax without always having to look over your shoulder for the next biker that wants to pass you.

Great place to unwind and relax walking, jogging or biking along the trail. Fall is especially a great time to go to view the beautiful fall colors.
