When you want a tranquil and awe-inspiring, yet easy walk this trail is well worth your time. Meandering through lush forest along a portion of Eel Lake shore, you’ll find yourself stopping often to gaze at the magnificent Cedar and Fir trees, the hanging moss and the verdant ferns. Waterproof footwear is necessary in winter months and a walking stick is a good idea on some slippery sections.

HikingBugsGreat!

This trail was great! It is not closed, so I’m not sure why that is noted on this trail. We took our 2 year old and she walked the whole thing, there and back. I would put on some bug spray, but they weren’t horrible. Also, hold little hands at the end of the trail. It ends at a bench and has a beautiful view of the lake. The fine sand is slippery for little ones and there’s a bit of a drop off to the water. There are 3 little bridges and everything is well maintained. Also, we were the only ones on the trail, but it was a Monday morning.

this is a short easy walk through large trees, ending at a pretty viewpoint with a bench. Beware of a Yellowjacket nest in the ground near the bench. And there is a family of snakes that likes to sun themselves right at the beginning of the trail that startles me EVERYTIME!
