  • Rich Lake Trail - This 0.6 mile trail is a great warm-up with views of Rich Lake and Goodnow Mountain. The short trek gives you a glimpse of what the other trails have to offer. Easy access. (follow the red markers)
  • Peninsula Trail - This 0.9 mile loop starts from the Rich Lake Trail and continues farther up the peninsula. The trail gives you excellent views of Rich Lake. There are a lot of ups and downs, which makes it slightly more difficult. (follow the green markers)
