Description

A very short lollypop from the parking lot, ranger station or Lake Crescent Lodge. Plenty of signs will guide you to the trailhead and from there you just head to the lake and hang a right.

Throughout the trail there are many signs and infographics to teach visitors about the local ecology and relaying the historic significance of the area. When the trail turns away from the lake you can take connectors to the NatureBridge science center or follow the main trail into the forest and back to the lake.

Beautiful walk along the lake. Extra field trip to kind of creepy Rosemary village if you want.
