Your Keys to Adventure

  1. Follow the park road to the far end of the parking area, and park as close as possible to the boat rental/restroom building.
  2. Locate the “Do Not Enter” sign and follow the gravel path toward the boat dock. Turn left at the end of the gravel path to begin your hike.
  3. Continue to follow the path as it winds through the grassy area, passing the wooden fishing pier on your right.
  4. Bear right to follow the Lakeside Trail, keeping the lake on your right. The trail will go up a slight rise as you continue to follow it. (There are yellow blazes on the trees.)
  5. When you come to a Y, stay right to continue following the trail. There will be more than one Y in the trail, and areas of mud and rocks.
  6. At the largest and most obvious Y in the trail, you will see a grassy path to the left and a muddy path to the right. Walk to the left and before the path turns to grass is where you will find the post.
  7. To return to your vehicle, turn around and retrace your steps back to the parking area, keeping the lake on your left.
