Description

Bass Lake Trail is found at the 1.1 mile mark along Hotel Trail. Turning off Hotel Trail, Bass Lake Trail gradually climbs in the grass hills as it winds its way northeast. The trail circles around a small pond with ducks and geese, at the 0.3 mile mark. Then after one more short uphill, Bass Lake, a lily pad covered pond nestled in the grass hills, comes into view. The trail crosses the Bass Lake outlet stream, and then ends at Loop Trail, along the shoreline of Bass Lake.

Flora & Fauna

Tree studded grass hills, green in the spring, golden in the summer and fall. Spring wildflowers. Ducks and geese at the ponds.
