From Vancouver, drive north on I-5 to Exit 14. Turn right on Northeast 179th Street and drive to the city of Battle Ground. Drive to the east end of town and turn left on Grace Avenue. Drive three miles to Battle Ground Lake State Park. The signed trailhead is near the day-use area within the park.

I love this walk! No hiking involved and a beautiful walk around the park.

The lake is beautiful and so peaceful especially mid-week! Trails are very well maintained and even saw a horseback rider out today.

Decent area. Couple of nice views. crowded by people using the lake to swim so parking can be tuff in summer Doubles as equestrian trails in some areas so steep hills are ate up and watch out for horse excrement. Don't swim in the lake, just my personal opinion.

Close to home. Main trail around lake is ok. Trails are going all over and not really any marking. Spring can be very muddy. So wear shoes u intend to be muddy. They have hire trails, bike trails, camp sites.

This is not 7 miles even if you go all the at around the outside loop it's only roughly 3.7. The small loop around the lake is 1.2 miles. Unfortunately the horses go on all the trails even the ones marked no horses so the trails are covered in waste and the spots that would be wet due to weather are a muddy mess from the horses walking. If your looking for a quick walk of about a mile with young kids then go the trail by the lake as it's clean and well maintained. If your looking for a longer hike go somewhere else.

This is the perfect place to go with kids or for an afternoon walk. If you want something less crowded, you are going to have to go out farther- You can't expect to drive 3 minutes out of Battle Ground and be in a secluded area!
Cute lake for paddling around, nice trails for short day hikes or for running.
