Description

The first mile is a crushed limestone road with a gentle rise. when you leave the road for the loop around the campground you'll be on a singletrack trail that is well kept and fairly even. When you leave the camping area there is a 160' rise that brings you to a beautiful overlook of the valley. the next mile takes you along a narrow, well marked, nature trail with a bridge halfway to the lake. you'll emerge onto a grass trail that circles the lake. this is fairly even and well maintained.
