The 5.9 -mile Tipsaw Trail is open to hiking and mountain biking. The shaded trail through scenic hardwood forest offers scenic overlooks of Tipsaw Lake and the valley. There are three trailheads for this trail, one of which is within the recreation area and close to water and toilet facilities. This is the also the only trailhead that would require paying a parking fee to park. The other trailheads would be free to park and use the trail though a trail permit would be required for mountain bikers. The trail is nearly all single-track so mountain bikes yield to hikers. It is mostly flat, a few moderate climbs with some rocky parts.
