Overview

Features: Fall Colors — Lake

Description

There are several places to park around the park, though this description begins from the parking area on Main Park Rd. The trail is mostly crushed limestone, but there are also several paved sections, which makes navigation simple. This trail goes around Lake Defiance, one of the larger lakes in the state park, so be sure to enjoy the lake views.

If you're looking for a longer route, be sure to check out some of the other trails in the park. Please be aware that this trail is shared with bikes.
