Need to Know

Bring some money for the tolls. Check with the park about fees.

Runner Notes

Quite rooty and rocky at the start, watch the ankles.

Description

The trail starts at the entrance of the park, before the toll booth. It curves off to the right and generally descends. This is the hardest part of the trail. The trails winds around the outside of the park and leads across a strip of power lines. It then loops back and climbs through a series of switchbacks.

Most people take the route around the lake. There is also a small playground at the entrance with water fountains and bathrooms.

Flora & Fauna

You'll see signs of beavers, usually in the form a downed tree.
