Route Description for Trinity Lakeshore Trail
Leading hikers through mixed forestlands, along the shoreline cliffs, and through meadowlands, there is no shortage of scenery to indulge in along this excursion. This route undulates along the shoreline of Trinity Lake, demanding a few steep ascents, but hikers of most skill levels and ages should be able to manage. Additionally, as this route is shared with bikers, it is important to be mindful of passers-by! Note the path is not well signposted in sections, so consider using the trail GPS.
Setting out from the trailhead in the Clark Springs Campground, the Trinity Lakeshore Trail wanders southeast along the water. Enjoy the scene of the shimmering lake as you hike along the undulating route. Passing a boat launch, the path will weave between woodlands and exposed terrain, offering distant views of the Trinity Alps. Hugging the curves of the shore, you will pass a dock and intersect with streams before reaching the trail’s end at Stoney Creek.
At this point, turn around and retrace your footing along the path back to the trailhead, marking the end of your adventure.
