Overview

This out-and-back lollipop run starts from the West Launch parking area off North Reeds Road/Marsh Creek Park Road. Follow the trail above the banks of the lake to access the dam with unobstructed views across the lake.

Need to Know

The trails in the west and south are multi-use with the exception of the hike-only White Trail which links Little Conestoga Road to the Chalfont Road parking area. The trails around the East Launch (Red Trail) are hike-only.

Description

From the West Launch, head southeast along the shores of the lake on the Dam Trail. Stay to the left at all intersections to continue all the way along the lake to the dam. Cross the dam along the dirt road to find a short loop through the woods that descends and then climbs back up toward the dam. This loop can be skipped.

Retrace your steps along the Dam Trail or find the White Trail which provides an alternate route back to the start. The White Trail follows some sections of Covered Bridge Road.
