Features Birding · Lake

Closes at dusk, must have Discovery Pass.

Description

Start this trail under the Deception Pass bridge and take the leftmost trail heading east. The trail will head down for a short while before rolling along the waterline though this may not be apparent in the thick forest.

Stay to the left at any intersections, the trail will soon head south and then west before an intersection with Goose Rock Summit. Stay left and continue along the waterline on the Lower Forest Trail. The trail will come to a wooden gate and fence with the Discovery Trail to your right which will take you back to your starting point.
