Cool little trail with great views of Lyman Lake. Lots of uphill with rock-made steps to get your heart beating, well-worn and obvious path. Take the quick side trail down and back to a camping-parking lot, in order to make it a full 2.4 miles approx. my drawing of the trail is totally approximate. See the actual park map in the photos. Trailhead is immediately on the right at the entrance to the park. If you park there, and hike the trail, go to the self-pay box at the camping lot to pay $3 day fee. If you’re actually using the lake and drive in, itks $7 per car. Inside the park are a couple of .5 mile trails including one with pretty cool petroglyphs.
