Description

Start at Picnic Area 3 at Lake Needwood. Although the trail begins almost due north, you quickly turn around and head south to the boat house.

The singletrack winds through the woods and crosses a couple bridges.

As you pass the docks on your right you're almost done.

Flora & Fauna

Geese, deer, beavers!
