We did this trail as part of the loop around the lake. The park map is missing the blue-blazed trail. It completes the loop by connecting the crow trail to the spirit trail, which also includes a short section on the road. We went clockwise, starting from the boat launch. Follow the yellow blazes until the lakeview trail comes to a clearing and there's really no clue as to which way to go. Bear right (~45 degrees) going a little downhill and stay on the wide one-car-lane trail. Bear left at the intersection with the crow trail, no signs or blazes, and follow this to the road. Take a right at the road, cross the bridge, and the blue-blazed trail is right there. Follow this to the red-blazed trail (we went right), then to the white-blazed trail (we went right), then to the yellow-blazed trail (right again), back to the lake. About 6 miles around. Overall, a very pretty trail, fairly easy, but requires some route-finding skills.
