The Saginaw Trail follows an old narrow-gauge railroad bed used by lumbermen of the Saginaw Timber Company around 1900. The trail begins near the campground dump station and is a shortcut to the lake.

I found this trail to be very interesting. Although not particularly scenic compared to other trails in DeGray Lake state park, the history behind this trail fascinates me. The trail follows an old narrow gauge railroad used during logging operations over 100 years ago. It is a nice short walk in the woods.
