Features Lake · Views · Wildlife

Need to Know

Parking at Timberview requires a $3 day pass with cash/check or a year pass which can be purchased for $25. Envelopes are near parking trail info board. No toilet at parking, but there is a changing area.

Runner Notes

Small to medium size gravel on the trail, but nothing too technical. Sometimes trees may be down after a storm and you'll need to run around them. This is a shared trail with horses and bikers.

Description

Wide trail with some rocks, a lake view at the end, and access to other trails. You can share the path with bikes and people with strollers or the occasional fisherman.

Flora & Fauna

Possible bear, deer, snakes, and plenty of early morning spiderwebs.
