Lake Trail descends from the Snowflex parking lot down to Hydaway Lake along a ridge. Near the top, the trail is bench cut with rooty, off camber sections, rocky sections, and very narrow ledges. When wet, the trail can be very technically demanding. As the trail gets to the bottom of the valley, it flattens out with large sections of roots and rocks. The trail is fun in either direction, but the top 100 yards or so are fairly steep.
