A short loop around a small man-made lake.

Park hours are 6 AM to 11 PM.

Description

The Poston trail network has several loops of varying difficulty within a very small footprint. This section features two narrow 20 foot long bridges across the creeks that feed the lake.

The trailhead is at a small parking lot with a picnic shelter, a volleyball court and a dock nearby.

The Laurel Hill Loop starts and ends at this trail roughly two thirds of the way around.
