Above should say “Long Branch Connector”... not Flat Creek.

Good workout to top (about 1 mile from parking) then steep downhill to Flat Creek Connector (which turned into some hike-a-bike on the way back up). From Flat Creek Connector to the lake was narrow and fun and mostly downhill and much less used. Go past the trail end for some relaxing lake views before starting back...Coming back was a workout. Then the last mile back to parking was a full-on blast.

Beautiful long trail hike with some spots to get a decent jog in.
Hiking boots not necessary, but definitely not overkill. Lots of creek crossings, but, at least during April on a dry week, none that will get shoes soaked.
