Features Birding · Fall Colors · Lake · Wildflowers · Wildlife

Open dawn to dusk. If you drive into the park be aware that the gates are locked at dusk.

Description

This route is a short journey on a paved trail. The way will be mostly flat, except for the first 300 yards which is quite steep. Follows the edge of the lake then cuts across grassy fields to the boathouse. The boathouse has toilets and other facilities, but it's not always open. In the summer months, you can rent kayaks there.

Flora & Fauna

Fishing in the lake. Occasional deer, waterfowl, small animals, and wildflowers in Spring/Summer.
