Your Keys to Adventure

  1. Park close to the end of the lot near the fishing pier.
  2. Walk down the paved ramp toward the fenced area and proceed to the Lakeside Trail signpost.
  3. Follow the Lakeside Trail up the slight hill, past the Boulder Woods Disc Golf sign near basket #7 and tee pad for hole #8.
  4. Follow the path on the left, also keeping the lake on your left.
  5. The path will continue to curve to the right; stay on the path as it gently curves following the lake.
  6. Eventually, the path will curve to the right and away from the lake as you go up a small rise.
  7. Continue following the path as it gets closer to the shoreline again.
  8. See if you can find the remnants of a rock wall on your left between the path and the lake. Continue on the path.
  9. At the trail intersection (you will see posts with #37) with the boulder in the middle of the trail, turn left and continue to follow the path over a small wooden bridge.
  10. You will pass a series of large boulders on either side of the trail. Keep walking until you find a large, flat boulder on the left side of the trail in the shape of the letter C.
  11. The post can be found behind the tree on the left that is just beyond the flat boulder.
  12. To return to your vehicle, turn around and retrace your steps back to the parking area. After you cross over the small wooden bridge, turn right at the trail intersection with the boulder.
