    Route Description for Merrill Lake Campground Loop

    If you’re staying at the Merrill Lake Campground, this short and sweet loop is the ideal way to enjoy the lake and get a few steps in. Those not staying at the campground can make use of the day use parking and spend the afternoon walking, paddleboarding, picnicking, or swimming.

    The walk begins from the parking loop near the camping sites. You’ll walk south past the restrooms and past the day use parking. The trail forks near the water and you can decide which way to go. Staying left will give you the closest lake views on the return trip and staying right will start your hike with the lake nearby.

    There are no intersecting trails to worry about, so whichever way you choose to go, relax and enjoy your walk. The loop turns back around about a half-mile in, and then you’ll follow the same trail back to the starting point.
