Runner Notes

Your legs are about to get a workout.

Description

To get to the trailhead, park in the parking lot overlooking the lake. Once parked, you'll see a big green transformer next to a pine tree. That is the trailhead. The park recommends runners go clockwise and bikers go counter clockwise. Runners are to give bikers the right of way.

The trail is really fun and covers a lot of different terrain. It crosses over the lake in multiple spots as well as all of the creeks feeding into the lake. While there aren't any major hills, be prepared for many small ups and downs the entire way around the lake.

This area's clusters of pines become even more beautiful when snow blankets the understory.
