Lovely place. If you're a cyclist, there are challenging bicycle paths. Here you can walk on your own pace, relax and sit on a bench while looking through the lake. And there's a cafe close to the parking area.

Came to Coyote Grille with a group of friends. Food was great. Fish and chips were amazing. French fries were fresh cut and not out of a bag like most restaurants. Friendly server. Beautiful scenery.
