Nature Trail

Length: 2.3 miles

Type: Hiking Trail

Difficulty: Easy

Description:  From the trail entrance off the park road, or from the parking area, begin this short, level, easy-walking, out-and-back nature trail. Several spur footpaths lead to the scenic lakeshore on this quiet, shady, peninsula. Watch for a variety of snakes and other wildlife including great blue heron, woodpeckers, and song birds. A short loop at the end of the trail turns you back to retrace your steps.
