“An easy yet rewarding 3.4 mile loop around Shawnee Lake in Shawnee State Park.”— James Feather
Allow 1.5 to 2 hours to complete the loop at a leisurely pace.
The trail then makes a bend around a pavilion and follows the lake closely, crosses several small bridges, and then rises up to meet a gravel service road for the dam. Follow the road until you see the dam to your right and the trail going across the top. The trail crosses the top of the dam before following the lake closely until it leads to the park road at another parking area.
The trail is marked alongside of the road and crosses two bridges before ending at the original parking area near the boat launch.
