      Mascoutin Campground has a one-mile multi-use limestone trail between the campground and the beach. Bicycles are permitted on the five miles of hiking trails located north of the beach including Houseboat Cove Trail, Pond in Woods Trail and North Loop Trail. These trails are not paved and consist of either mowed grass or natural earth surfaces. They are easy-to-moderate in difficulty and follow the shoreline through the woods. Other hiking trails within the Mascoutin Campground area include the 2-mile Lakeshore Trail. Bicycles are not permitted on the Lakeshore Trail because of the numerous stairways and wooden bridges.

      The 9.3-mile North Fork Hiking Trail, off Route 54 north of the power plant entrance, is primitive and rated as difficult. The trail is not surfaced and runs through steep wooded banks and provides unparalleled views of the lake and opportunities to view wildlife. There are no exits once you enter the trail, so be prepared for 4.2 miles up and 5.1 miles back. The trail features a 40-acre restored prairie along the North Fork, but beautiful wildflowers can be seen along both trails.

      A ten-mile equestrian/hiking/cross-country ski trail is located on the north side of Clinton Lake, east of Parnell Access Area. Horse trailer parking is provided at Parnell Access Area where a wheelchair ramp for mounting horses is available. Bicycles are not allowed on Clinton Lake’s equestrian trail. There are no rentals or horse camping facilities at Clinton Lake.
