    Terrace Lakes Trail

    Terrace Lakes Trail
    2 more images

    The trail to the Terrace Lakes (Terrace Lake, Shadow Lake, and Cliff Lakes) is 3.5 miles roundtrip with a 550 foot gain in elevation. The three lakes along the Terrace Lakes Trail vary in size, depth and shoreline features. The first one you reach on the trail is the beautiful Terrace Lake; which is about .6 miles roundtrip. The trail between the lakes can get fairly steep then it levels out as you near the lakes. I only hiked to Terrace Lake. This is a Moderately Strenuous Trail, and one of my favorites in the park.

    Equipment: Good walking shoes, water, sunscreen, a hat, insect repellant, a snack, and weather appropriate clothing, don't forget your camera!

    Reflection Lake Trail
    1 more image

    The Reflection Lake Trail is a .6 mile loop trail and the Lily Pond Trail is a 1 mile roundtrip trail. Reflection Lake is well named as the still surface reflects the surrounding trees like a mirror. The Lily Pond is full of water lilies that are quite pretty when the flowers bloom. Both these trails are easy.

    Equipment: Good walking shoes, water, sunscreen, a hat, insect repellant, a snack, and weather appropriate clothing, don't forget your camera!
