Features: Birding — Fall Colors — Lake — Wildlife
This trail is one of many within the 340 acres that make up Ft. Steilacoom Park, the largest park in Lakewood.
Users will find a mostly flat, well-maintained trail to roam around the lake. There is a Labyrinth near the start of the trail as well as a historical path where you can find interesting historical facts.
Waughop Lake is at the western end of this expansive trail system; a system that roams through and around prairie lands, historical barns, trails, sports fields, a playground, radio-controlled aircraft area for hobbyists and an off-leash dog park. Connect this trail with others to tour the entire park.
