Heidi L. on Lake Wilderness
Family friendly swimming area. Plenty of space to picnic after walking the trail.
Melonie R. on Lake Wilderness
Scenic and fun trail; very kid friendly! Geo-caches along the way.
Easy trail to do with the family.
We thought the 8 mile loop would be next to the lake for the entire loop, but the main trail was only next to the lake for about 2 miles. We went off a few side trails to stay close to the water, and were pleasantly surprised to see a park there with a beach/swimming area and plenty of grass for picnicking in the summertime. There were also tennis courts, a baseball field, and big toys for kids. I would recommend Mapquesting Lake Wilderness Lodge for better directions than just clicking on the "Directions" link from this site. Those directions took us to a residential area with park access for members only.
