A section of the trail on the north side of the lake is closed from February 1 to July 15 for Loon nesting. The closure point is well signed. You can still complete a loop hike by taking Wakeley Lake West Loop.
This is the main loop in the Wakeley Lake Area. In addition to the trail network, there is a walk-in campground and fishing on the lake itself. Parking is right off M-72.
