“A one mile, easy, paved loop around Best Lake.”— Jonathan Engdahl
Family Friendly An easy trail for kids and strollers, with a picnic shelter and decent restrooms.
Proceeding clockwise from the shelter on the main trail, you'll come to a Y. Right takes a short side-trip to the blind, which is well worth it, while left continues along the settling pond. Until the sharp southwest corner, the trail is mainly through woods, but after the corner, the remainder is mostly open.
There are several fishing platforms, mostly on the north side. On the east side, the boardwalk to the east leads to a parking lot, the bridge to the west starts the inner loop around the marsh, and straight continues around the lake and back to the shelter. There are two parking areas. The lot to the east is connected via a boardwalk. The restrooms and picnic shelter are adjacent to the central parking lot.
