This 2-mile trail (one-way) begins at the South Trailhead and ends at Lake Lurleen Dam. There, it connects to the much longer Tashka Trail
. Lakeside Trail is an excellent option for short hikes and as an introductory ride for novice mountain bikers. It is more difficult than the Ridge Trail
. There are longer, steeper climbs and some large roots. It is about half singletrack/ half machine benched. It follows the lake shoreline, providing continuous, beautiful scenery. Use caution. The trail is shared by hikers, bikers and bank fishermen.
