“This flat loop circles the lake and offers views from two docks. Bring binoculars for bird-watching!”— Emily Roeben
The lakeside loop is flat and wheelchair accessible from two parking lots. There are two docks where you can stop for bird-watching. The north side of the loop will bring you over a land-bridge, and then around to a playground area. Alternatively, if you veer north you can access the Pipeline Trail (not wheelchair accessible).
See the park's website for event calendar more details.
