“A fun loop with tight switchbacks and a scenic shoreline section.”
— Bryce Mihalevich
The closest parking is at the gravel pullout on the road that leads to the campground. This trail has a lot of intersections with hiking trails and not all are marked well. Once you enter the woods you'll see the trail split. Go right, following the yellow arrows. The trail will switchback a couple of times, climbing up the hill. Eventually the trail will exit the woods by a bathroom and pavilion. Stay to the left and head down the wide gravel hiking trail to an immediate right turn back into singletrack. Continue following yellow markers.
After about 2.5 miles the trail will exit into a small field right by the water. The trail continues along the shoreline for another mile. This section is the most technical, consisting of many roots and rocks. After the shoreline you'll cross a wooden bridge that leads up to a wide gravel hiking trail with wood steps. Stay right to finish the loop.
The trail is best ridden counter-clockwise, like all trails at Binder.
