This trail follows the east bank of the Shavers Lake shoreline. It has numerous small gradient changes throughout the run. Intermittent sections have spruce roots growing across the tread, and there are a couple sections where you'll want to watch your footing.
At the north end of the trail, you'll find the Shavers Lake Beach, The Boathouse, and Ballhooter Chairlift. This run can be incorporated into a longer run, beginning at Cheat Mtn Ridge Trail to 6000 Steps to Shavers Lake Trail, climbing Shavers Lake Road
to Powder Puff
, which lands you back on the summit.
