Beautiful circuit of the ravines that feed into Mountwood Lake. Wildlife is abundant.

Description

This trail starts just past the Walter Taitt Trail at the water treatment plant and sticks to the steep and rocky shoreline of Mountwood Lake when ridden counter-clockwise. An improved legacy trail, it has short, steep sections and a number of bridges.

The Lake Trail also connects to quite a few other trails south of Volcano Rd., and deer, beaver, muskrat, and great blue heron sightings are common here. The last three-quarter mile of this trail is gravel doubletrack that ends at the lake house parking lot near the park entrance. However, bicycles are not permitted on the lake's dam, so access to this stretch of the Lake Trail requires taking Tomahawk trail and part of Medicine Man trail to circumvent it.

I mostly use this as a connector trail to others. SE side of lake is fun though. Nov 21, 2017
