Forest Lake Trail will run through the heart of Thousand Hills State Park connecting the marina, dining lodge, cabins, swimming beach and petroglyph site. Forest Lake Trail is a cooperative effort of the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and the Forest Lake Area Trail System, a communitywide volunteer group supporting trails in Adair County. The two agencies are developing plans to connect this trail to Campground 1 and to the city of Kirksville.

Lakeside trail with nice views. Earthen trail relatively flat with some inclines. Numerous deer in greater park area but none on the trail itself.
