A 5 mile loop around Crooked Lake. This 5 mile loop is part of the Potawatomi Trail. It is a 5 mile loop that circles Crooked lake. It also intersects with several other trails, such as the Silver Lake trail. Terain ranges from flat, well packed dirt to boardwalk to sand, to rugged hills. It is a very good training loop for cross country running, as well as conditioning hikes. There are some wonderful views along the trail, as well as a camping area should you wish to camp there. It is important to note that this trail is open during hunting season, so take appropriate precautions.

Went with 4 kids ages 12-7. All had a great time...7 year old was nice and tired near the end.

It was a gorgeous hike that was shaded the entire time. The roots in the trail made it difficult at times but it was worth it. There is a bridge at one point that is on the edge of a lake, I can't remember the name, but it was breathtaking.
