Description

This is a nice trail to hike. It is a rolling singletrack with views of the lake from most of the trail. There are a few sections with roots and stumps to be cautious of, but it is a fairly easy hike. The colors are spectacular during the fall. Beaver habitats and the occasional beaver can also be seen.

Note that while dogs are allowed on most of the trail, they are not allowed around the Nature Center and Habitats.

Flora & Fauna

You can occasionally see beavers in the lake.
