Lynd Trail- the prettiest trail on Door Peninsula. Through a beautiful forest very close to the Lake for most of the way. Very little mud, even after 2 days of rain.

So pretty, through woods with lake right beside you most of the time. You forget you’re in the Midwest! Was nervous about snakes bc of previous review, but only saw one and would have missed it if it wasn’t pointed out to us!

I definitely recommend this trail. Not to difficult, very scenic between forested paths to lake front views. The trail is not terribly well marked but easy enough to find your way around. Definitely worth taking some of the small trails off the main path for scenic views.

Just saw six snakes in 30 minutes on this trail. That is a going rate of one snake every five minutes, so take from that what you will. Mostly garter and one fox snake, all non venomous, but the sheer density of snakes is a concern.

Lots of mosquitoes and rain during our time, but overall very pretty! cute blue flowers everywhere and difficult terrain of rocks. Lovely ferns towards the end

First time doing this loop and was pleasantly surprised. A brief part after you start turning away from the lake that was muddy but otherwise great trail conditions. Lots of gnats, no mosquitoes! Take the little off trails to the lake, you may find a private beach or two!

I would not consider the Lynd portion of this trail easy. The path is rocky and full of tree roots. That being said we enjoyed this hike very much. Much of the trail runs along the water and is beautiful. It was not busy at all early in the day (before 10:00), we only saw three other people during the entire hike.

Lovely trail for August. I suspect it would be very wet and “buggy” in early summer. Thimble berries in great abundance and just getting ripe - we picked s lot of these tasty berries on our hike.
