Go Visit: Lake Needwood
There is a trail that runs all the way around the lake (about 2.7 miles) as well as a number of other loop trails that branch off from it. Parts of the trail are gravel and other parts are packed dirt.
I went on a Sunday afternoon, and the picnic areas and parts near the parking lot were busy, but once you got a little ways away it was quiet. Lots of people walk around the lake, but it is a big loop so it is easy to keep appropriate distance.
At the south end of the lake is a large dam. You can't roll down the grassy side of the it because of fences, but you can get a good view of the lake.
