Description

If coming from the Welcome Center, go right (downhill) where the Yost Ridge Trail ends. You'll go steeply downhill for a hundred yards and then come to the lake. You'll pass a picnic area and then skirt the west side of the lake before ascending steeply again. After it levels out you'll come to a fork where you can take a right. This trail will lead you back to the campground and Red Trail and Orange Trail.
