“A level, meandering trail along the shores of St. Mary Lake with plenty of views and skipping rocks.”— Jake Bramante
This trail meanders through cottonwoods with plenty of access to the rocky shore with smooth stones. Tall, rocky summits line the lake on the opposite shore creating a dramatic landscape. After less than a mile of level traveling, the trail ends up at the parking lot for the boat dock where you can turn around and head back the way that you came.
