Do not run on vegetation or in solution pits, whether wet or dry. Follow the cairns across bare rock.

Description

This blue-blazed loop trail offers some of the best landscape views in the Davidson-Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve. The trail starts off of the Mountain Top Trail and skirts the base of Arabia Mountain, giving runners a great vantage point of the area. The trail then loops around Mountain Lake, a scenic lake at the base of the mountain. This lake is used as a resting point for migrating waterfowl, so depending on the time of year that you visit, you may see an abundance of birds in the area. The trail eventually connects back to the Mountain Top Trail to complete its loop.
