We were watching the lakeside scenery from canoes, but hiking on the lakeside trail opened a whole new world of nature to us.

The Vicki Barron Lakeside Trail is appropriate for all trail users. It starts close to the store and docking area.

We found its wide base made up of packed gravel screenings that made it suitable for bicycles, wheelchairs and strollers. No motorized vehicles are allowed though. The easy Trail goes all along the lake (see picture # 5) and seemed to be fairly popular with hikers and anglers.

Spring season wildflowers were blooming all along the Trail. However, much winter foliage had not turned into full green yet.

There are two other trails going into the forest.
