Lakeside Camping (Sunset Point)
Apr 1, 2018 near Indepen…, KS
There's a lot of short, rocky, 8' climbs in just the first mile of trail.  Be sure to wear proper hiking boots.

Millie is showing us the way.  Lots of Red Cedars through this section and it's very flat; a welcome change to the first 3/4 mile!

Great scenic view of the lake.  Careful, this is on the edge of a 40' ledge.

This is a neat "hidden" area of the trail.  The trail looks to go in front of the ledge of rocks, but you can go between a couple of rocks to get back in here.  It's blazed to indicate it's trail, it's just easy to miss.

The trail wraps around lots of neat rock formations!

This is the lake view you've been looking for!

Another great view of the lake!  Be careful here though, I'm standing above an area that has slumped and fallen off into the lake; that's why there's no trees in front of this shot.
