Time to give your body and mind a scenic break with a pedal around Philips Lake reservoir. If you’re fortunate enough to be staying at the awesome Southwest Shore Campground then just roll out from your picnic table. If you’re with the kids, a quick out-and-back on the south side of the lake provides a relatively easy, but still scenic, spin among the trees. Regardless, be sure to bring a cooler of cold beverages and kick up your heels after the ride.
