Route Description for Pyramid Island
This trail is short and sweet, but it does get busier on the weekends. Try visiting early or midweek for a less crowded experience.
From the parking lot, you’ll be able to see Pyramid Island in the lake. Head down to the lakeshore and approach the bridge. The view looking down the bridge to the island is a highlight of this trail. Cross the bridge and then follow the short, obvious trail that loops around the island. It doesn’t matter which direction you go.
Take some time to sit on the benches, enjoy the view, and relax. You’ll be able to see the peaks of Pyramid Mountain, Mount Kinross, and Cairngorm across the lake.
Once you’re done enjoying the scenery, head back the way you came across the bridge and back to the parking lot.
This is a great location for a family photo. Bring a tripod for your family photo!
