“This is a great trail with a little bit of everything for quick workouts.”— Dan Rothstein
When you leave the camping area there is a 160 foot climb 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.
Finally, you'll emerge onto a grass trail that circles the lake. This is fairly even and well maintained. After this, the trail loops back to the parking area where you started.
