Family Friendly Very moderate inclines. Good for younger children, although the mileage may be an issue. There is a camping area, with a shelter.

Please abide by all regulations and signage.

Description

Counter clockwise, begin at the Park Marina and hike along the shore of the lake for a good distance before climbing easily up a drainage. There is a short, steep climb guarding the ridge top where you can divert onto Claylick Loop or continue on the Michael Tygart Loop.

You can hike Claylick Loop and return to this point for a nice long outing. From this point, you follow the road for a bit and then pick the trail back up for the ridge hike back to the road above the marina.
