Runner Notes

There are some steep drop-offs to be wary of, but the mostly flat terrain makes this one good for runners.

Description

This route is by far the best trail in the East Fork State Park when it comes to views. While you can see plenty from the trail, a multitude of spur trails and game trails that lead to waters edge, where you'll be able to take in the scenic lake and the wildlife in the area. If you're not too loud or boisterous, you may catch a heron feeding by the shores.

Use the Hopewell Trail main trailhead, or alternately use the East trailhead for the Hopewell Trail, or use the East trailhead for the Backpacking trail, or also use the Lake Trail Eastern Trailhead to gain access to this trail. The trail is centrally located, so all of these trailheads will lead you to this great trail.

The latter three options are available from Park Road 3.

Flora & Fauna

Squirrels, chipmunks, deer, songbirds, heron, and there have been reports of a roosting pair of Bald Eagles by the lake.
