“Lake views, picnic areas, and an interesting trail - this loop has it all!”— Mike Williams
After about a third of a mile along the lake, the Ridge Loop Trail turns back to the northeast and climbs about 70 feet to the top of a small ridge. A short jaunt along the ridge brings you to a great place to stop and look across the lake. You can use the wooden bench at the side of the trail or sit on the ledge of rock just beyond for unobstructed view of a very pretty lake.
Follow the Ridge Loop back to its intersection with the Northwest Trail and retrace your steps back to the pavilion to finish the hike.
