“The Southshore Trail #529 - East is a scenic part of the Timothy Lake Loop along the southshore.”— Kathleen Walker
For those wanting to start near the dam, they can park at the Pine Point Day Use Area (day use fee or Northwest Forest Pass required). Head east on the Southshore Trail #529 west side where it passes through the Pine Point Day Use, Pine Point Campground, The Cove Day Use Area, and then Hoodview Campground. Just after leaving the campground, the trail ends and picks up the Timothy Lake Timothy Lake Trail #528. Follow the Timothy Lake Trail for a short distance to where the Southshore Trail - East starts.
The Southshore Trail #529 - East starts in Gone Creek Campground and continues east through Oak Fork Campground. It ends east of Oak Fork Campground at the intersection with Timothy Lake Trail #528 near the Pacific Crest Trail #2000 (closed to bikes).
Those wanting to continue around the lake on bikes need to take a right (south) on Timothy Lake Trail #528 a short distance uphill to its intersection with the Miller Trail #534. You can follow Miller Trail #534 around Clackamas Lake Campground and pick up the Headwaters Trail #522 in the Joe Graham Campground. Across the street (Forest Road 42) from the entrance road to Joe Graham Campground is the Old 1916 Trail #537 aka Timothy Lake Bike Trail. It is also possible to just follow Miller Trail #534 to its intersection with Forest Road 57, turn left (east) on the road and turn left again on Road 42. Travel a short stretch and access the Old 1916 Trail #537 aka Timothy Lake Bike Trail across from the entrance to the Joe Graham Campground.
This part of the Timothy Lake Loop is wonderful for beginner riders including children. There are plenty of spots to stop for water and restrooms in the campgrounds. The lake is a great spot to cool off.
