There are dogs all over this park but most people appear to have cleaned up.  The main trail is just a gravel road down to the lake.  You can detour up a hill and find yourself on Dana Peak,very rapidly.  Hang left on the way up to get the best vistas while walking.  The hike off the peak is a bit steep in places and you may need to look down a bit to keep your footing.  Back on the mail path, go up the hill and hang a left for a detour that will feel like you are trespassing on someone's private farm  No real views there but the light through the overhanding trees and a few moments of open grass area make this hike special and very quiet.
