Description

This trail is one of many within the 340 acres that make up Ft. Steilacoom Park, the largest park in Lakewood.

Users will find a mostly flat, well-maintained trail to roam around the lake. There is a Labyrinth near the start of the trail as well as a historical path where you can find interesting historical facts.

Waughop Lake is at the western end of this expansive trail system; a system that roams through and around prairie lands, historical barns, trails, sports fields, a playground, radio-controlled aircraft area for hobbyists and an off-leash dog park. Connect this trail with others to tour the entire park.

Fore more information, visit the city's Fort Steilacoom Park website.

Flora & Fauna

Many birds, bats, rabbits, turtles, raccoons, weasel and deer call this area home, including bald eagles.
