Like many have stated before you are never more than a few feet away from the lake roads. About the time you feel that your getting into nature a truck drives by and you get a reality check. Once you get used to it you don't get too bothered. i went on a weekday so the park was not too busy. There are some great views of the lake that made the hike worthwhile. Trail was in good shape and the fee is now $3 per person.
