This is a create your own hike! Start up the rocks onto the dam and then turn left along the lakeshore. From there, wander freely wherever you want to go. Several fish were seen in the water below me. On the rock cliff there was a mother goose protecting her babies. Incredible views of the lake and rock formations.

Keyhole Dam trail is a game trail around the edge of the bay. You can find a trail if you keep your eyes open. Have to climb up the rocks along the dam to access the road, follow the gravel until it ends and trail starts there. Nice easy hike!

The access to this trail is locked with warnings against unauthorized vehicles. Color me sad. P.S. I talked to the ranger and found out you can go to the campground at the base of the dam and climb the rocks to access the trail.

Beautiful views of the Lake and some great deadfall. This is a game trail that is little hard to follow at times but easy enough area where you cannot lose your sense of direction. I’d definitely go back for a quiet picnic with the wife. Leave the kids and dog out next time. This is kind of a sweet spot for anyone with a sense of adventure.

If you like great photo ops with old trees, cliffs, birds, and lots of water you will LOVE this trail. Beautiful hike with minimal human activity and perfect for dog walking on a leash, our mini Aussie loved it as well.
