“This wooded doubletrack trail takes visitors past Turtle Rock on the shore of Newman Lake”— Carol Christensen
Family Friendly Easy, well-maintained tread, little elevation gain/loss, and a perfect picnic spot at the trail terminus make this a great family trail.
When the trail comes out of the trees, you're treated to a view of Newman Lake and the surrounding mountains. Turtle Rock juts out over the lake and there is a beautiful grassy area by the lake and a native plant garden to enjoy. The trail then moves further south and slightly west, uphill to West Newman Lake Drive.
Join this trail with Bedrock Ridge for a lovely loop in either direction.
