“Nice and woodsy, goes by the lake.”— Nicholas Walker
Family Friendly While the full loop might be too far for young kids, this area is perfect for your little explorers.
Once you get to another intersection where the graded trail begins, you can go right or left. Left will take you out on the West Pate Trail, and right will have you continuing on the East Pate Trail. For this one I went left. At the intersections, there are maps posted on the trail with ample information about which way to go. Navigation is pretty easy, allowing you to appreciate your surroundings instead.
