This trail loops completely around Yellowwood Lake. The trail uses several segment of other marked trails so caution to follow the right trail is needed. The path also requires you to navigate a shallow stream crossing. On the west side of the lake you will pass through a designated old growth area. Loop trail around Yellowwood Lake.

Love hiking through the woods along the lake up and down the hills. It is a really pretty hike no matter what time of the year you go. - Does get muddy if it's rained and there are some creek crossings so waterproof boots are best for hiking the trail.

Was a bit damp and muddy out, that was our own fault. A nice woody trail of ups and downs, dipping a few times into the public roads and picnic areas.

Beautiful hike!

Nice trail, some nice ups and downs. The pine forest sections were really nice, but you could tell that they were dying - Sad :(
Worthwhile trail to do, nothing super exiting but not super boring.

Really enjoyed the two sections with pine trees. It felt like I was in another state. Instead of walking on noisy leaves you walk on fallen pine needles and it was so quite.

Hiked 5.8. Not marked well near roads and dam- put in some extra steps finding trailheads. Remarkable sighting of frogs near dam- hundreds!!!!!

My favorite trail experience as a novice. Went on a warm summer day and rarely crossed anyone's path. Did manage to get several Yellowjacket stings at the branch off where the Lake trail separates from Scarce 'o Fat, but otherwise a great experience.

Really fun trail!! Slightly challenging, I felt more than the Scarce-O-Fat Trail which is nearby. A couple spots were muddy and did have to cross shallow water a few times. But was able to stay above the water on the rocks.Overall I really enjoyed it and felt worn out in a good way afterwards!
