“A trail to the boat shuttle launch when Fontana Lake is low.”— David Hitchcock
A backcountry permit is required to stay in campsites and shelters. Camping is restricted to established campsites or shelters throughout the park.
The trail leaves the waters edge and beings to climb (roughly 200 feet in .3 miles). When the trail meets the Lakeshore Trail, there are several options. If you go to the left, there is easy access to Campsite #86 and the Hazel Creek Trail, which is about a mile from the trail junction. If you go to the right, enjoy traveling along the Lakeshore Trail.
The shuttles to and from the Hazel Creek area depart from Fontana Marina, near Fontana Village and Fontana Dam. The trip provides good views of the surrounding mountains and easy access to trails in the Hazel Creek watershed and more remote sections of the park.
This trail is not marked on park maps at this point.
