Trail shared by Kevin Tallman

A fairly easy, albeit long, walk with access to small beaches along the East Fork Lake.

Description

This trail makes for an easy walk through the forest but not flat. There are switchbacks but nothing too extreme. Watch out for mountain bikers. There are a few water spots but it was standing water.

There is one side trail I remember that leads to the lake. I didn't take it. Campground 1 is about four miles in and I didn't see water there. It has three shelters, a privy and room for tent camping. I stopped at a small beach about one mile from Campground 1 with access to the lake.

Flora & Fauna

Deer that are not scared of you. They will just curiously stare back at you.
