About This Trail

[Total: 1    Average: 5/5]

This trailhead and trail just got a makeover (’19)! The new parking lot can hold maybe 20 cars, a covered porta-potty was installed, and the trail looks to have new gravel. This lake loop is great for getting in those toddler miles. It does connect with the BPA paved trail if you want to extend your mileage. The ballfields, parking lots, and busy road make this more of an urban stroll, but there’s a few side trails that lead down to the lake to make this worth the trip. A couple of bridges and a fun dip help keep the littles moving forward.
