A Man Holding A CompassConsidered a easy route this 2.5 mile loop trail that has a elevation gain of 262 ft and is a great trail for hiking, mountain biking, & running. Dogs are welcome, but must be on a leash. There are stoping points and rest benches with beautiful views of the lake. There are also quite a few spots to jump in the water for a swim if you desire! Everyone should bring water on this hike and if you plan on jumping in the water at the lake bring a towel! In the spring keep an eye out for the illusive pink lady’s slipper.
