#1 - Green Lakes Perimeter Trail
Green Lakes State Park
moderateYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarGray Star(148)
Length: 9.7 mi • Est. 4 h 35 m
Green Lakes State Park offers a number of short trails that can be combined to create a variety of walking experiences. This loop trail is just one of many possibilities that lets walkers see the entire park. The trail may be easily extended to the northeast and can be started from many of the park's parking lots. The trail around the lakes is the most crowded. Walking along the outer edge of the golf course avoids a road walk through the southeast portion of the park, but please be respectful of golfers and stay off the course when they're using it.
