The Harbor Loop Trail is 1.7 miles around the lake and includes two bridges. The trail also extends under Winton Road to the West Loop Trail, which is an additional .9 miles.
The trail passes by thy boathouse, which floats because of the lake being used for flood control, and by the campground, which includes 123 camping sites.
You will notice on the hillside near the basketball courts there is an historical marker for the Science Hall School. Built in 1806, it served as the area school for 132 years until 1938 when the Village of Greenhills was created.
