Burke Lake Loop Trail Reviews

Great Trail

The main trail incorporates a mix of asphalt and gravel surfaces with great views. There’s also a number of off-trails that offer more of a trail running experience through the deeper woods. Love this place!

really beautiful.

I walked a whole circle around the lake. Took me 2hours and some minutes. Wasn’t challenging because the view was great. About 15600 steps. Really great.

My first gravel trail

Loved the trees. The lake is soo beautiful. It’s a shared trail and at times is quite busy. Everyone listens and will move to their right. It’s not very hilly, great for a beginner. I loved it, so I did 2 loops!

so beautiful!!!

Not hard to do, difficult enough to present a challenge for a beginner, super enjoyable, big trees guarding the entire loop and fantastic lake views


The Most Beautiful Trail

I absolutely love this trail. It’s everything you desire in a trail. It’s so beautiful and so peaceful ¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿

favorite loop

Great loop that is around 4.5 miles. My favorite everyday run.

Great trail.

Very easy to navigate with little ones. Although it is advertised as 4.5, we ended up walking close to 6 miles. It would also be a great running trail, lots of traffic on a Saturday morning.
