“A fantastic trail through dense forests with abundant wildlife and lake access.”— Hunter R
Family Friendly Flat grades, a short distance, and gorgeous, lush forests make this trail a wonderful option for families with children.
Bring a camera and binoculars to spot the abundant plant species and wildlife found in this area.
Starting at the end of Bear Lake Road, head west along the trail, passing through forests bursting with mangroves as well as over 50 different species of tree. Along your journey, keep an eye out for beautiful, forest-dwelling birds that like to perch on the limbs of established hardwoods. At the trail's end, take in the majestic, blue-green waters of Bear Lake before returning the way you came.
