Description

Lakeview II is worth the effort. The most obstacles, fastest section, longest climb, and best view of the lake are all back here! Almost immediately after the Lakeview II split is a biggish log over, then the first of several quick drops to very short bridges. Lots of the fast little crossings followed by short, steeper climbs.

The fastest flowing section is around mile 5 (or just before) out to the lake overlook. This is a good place to stop & enjoy the view before starting the ~1/2 mile of mostly climb back out. It's not steep, but compared to others out here, just keeps going. Once it levels out, it's very similar to Lakeview I and Lakeview II as you eventually rejoin both on the way out. Both of these trails will merge in from your right due to the layout of the stacked loops.
