This 2-mile trail (one-way) begins at the South Trailhead and ends at the Lake Lurleen Dam. There, it connects to the much longer Tashka Trail. Lakeside Trail is an excellent option for short hikes and as an introductory ride to novice mountain bikers. It follows the lake shoreline, providing continuous, beautiful scenery. Use caution. The trail is shared by hikers, bikers and bank fishermen.

Access Info

Trail begins at the end of the general parking area left of the park entrance.
