“Journey from the woods to the beach in search of biting flies and some waterfall vistas.”— Jeff Menaker
Family Friendly Even when combined with the short stretch of the Chapel Lake Trail, this route is short enough for kids to enjoy with the added benefit of visiting a waterfall.
The trail is well maintained, although it could use some more trail signage and blazing. The trail is primarily singletrack with a few improved creek crossings and switchbacks.
This trail is part of the Chapel Basin loop. This alternate path adds about 1 mile to the overall loop but takes in the additional scenery of Mosquito Falls.
