Comments: Enjoyed packing around Lake Georgetown. We searched for the trailhead at Cedar Breaks Park (the attendent said it was just at the bottom of the hill) and ended up taking some deer trails instead. Bushwacking was quite fun. A detailed trail map, including the bike trails would be a big plus. There were few other hikers on the trail, except for some Boy Scouts preparing for Phillmont - Go Scouts! The lake water was a bit silty, we treated it and were fixing to start cooking. When the Scouters noticed and offered to filter it for us. What a wonderful good turn. If you're looking for quite this is not the place to go. There was plenty of air traffic and motor boat noise every day. At the end of the Good Water Trail, we followed mountain bike trails the rest of the way around. The trails were well marked with red tape and very nice, it was my favorite part of the whole hike. We saw only one or two bikes the whole day. Because of nice weather, walking over the dam was eazy. On hot days, it would be best to plan the dam crossing as early as possible.
