Trail Overview

This two-and-a-half-mile track takes you clear around Big Lake when the water level is high enough that you can't drive around the shore. The trail is wide enough for one vehicle, but there are places to pull over if you meet someone. There are some rocks in the trail, but nothing too challenging. Good ground clearance is required. It's a nice, easy trail with spectacular views. Big Lake is a great place to fish for Rainbow Trout. We were here in mid-July, and there was hardly anyone around. It's a beautiful place for a picnic, camping hiking, or fishing. The trail goes along the lake, but not so close as to be in the mud. At the north end of the lake, you drive across the top of the dam.

Difficulty

This is an easy trail with some rocks, but they're navigable.
