    Route Description for Lake Wilderness Trail

    The Lake Wilderness Trail is an easy to follow gravel pathway that offers beautiful views of the lake and a level surface for walking and running. It’s ideal for an easy walk with family or a break to take the dogs out.

    Watch for horse traffic on this path and keep dogs leashed.

    Begin from the trailhead in front of the museum, hiking on the Green to Cedar Rivers Trail. There are several junctions in the first part of the trail, but just keep going straight through all of them. Pass the gorgeous gardens on your right (perhaps ducking in to get a closer look) and then head towards the lake.

    Walk along the lakeshore, enjoying the views and the calm atmosphere. You can either turn back at the end of the lake or walk the entire length of the trail to SE Kent-Kangley Road and back.

    Getting to the Lake Wilderness Trail Trailhead

    The trailhead for the Lake Wilderness Trail is off Witte Road SE near the Fire Engine Museum.
