A fun loop with tight switchbacks and a scenic shoreline section.

Runner Notes

The shoreline portion of this loop is more rugged than the rest of the loop. Expect rocks and roots here and watch your step!

Description

The closest parking is at the gravel pullout on the road that leads to the campground. This trail has a lot of intersections with other hiking trails which are not all well marked. Once you enter the woods you'll see the trail split. Go right, following the yellow arrows. The trail will switchback a couple of times, climbing up the hill. Eventually the trail will exit the woods by a bathroom and pavilion. Stay to the left and head down the wide gravel trail to an immediate right turn back into singletrack. Continue following yellow markers.

After about 2.5 miles the trail will exit into a small field right by the water. The trail continues along the shoreline for another mile. This section is the most rugged, consisting of many roots and rocks. After the shoreline you'll cross a wooden bridge that leads up to a wide gravel trail with wood steps. Stay right to finish the loop.
