The Whitefish Trail around Woods Lake includes include three scenic overlooks with views of Woods Lake, Whitefish Lake and the Whitefish Range. The Goguen Family donated a 1.5 mile trail easement to the City of Whitefish providing the Whitefish Trail its first view of Whitefish Lake and a scenic loop trail. The Woods Lake Trailhead offers parking, restrooms, information and lake access for carry-in boats. Woods Lake is historically known for its trophy fishing opportunities and promises to be an ideal family-friendly recreation asset on the Whitefish Trail. North Beaver Connection amenities are limited to an informational kiosk only, with no garbage can, mutt mitts, or toilet facilities.
