This is a short loop that spurs off from the Yost Ridge Trail. It leads down to a nice lake with a great area for a picnic. No fishing allowed in lake. The trail then loops back up the ridge to Yost.

What an amazing hike to a secluded lake. I started from the Paul Yost parking lot which involved tons of sandstone steps they installed on the knob.

Yost trail connects with Mitchell Lake trail. There are nice picnic tables and benches on the edge of the lake that make a great spot for lunch.

Good hike. Nearly 4 miles. Some pretty strenuous uphill climbs. Trekking poles were helpful. Lake is pretty--especially with fall colors. Be sure to carry water. There are picnic tables at the lake. People at the visitors center were very helpful and friendly.
