Description

A number of bird species and animals frequent the lake and surrounding vicinity. Some of the more popular or interesting creatures often observed along the trail are deer, beaver, muskrats, pileated and other woodpeckers, mergansers, upland plovers, and western tanagers.

Fishing for eastern brook and rainbow trout ranges from fair to good. Swimming, picnicking, and a developed campground are available.

Wildflowers abound throughout the year with a spectacularly colorful display every spring which lasts well into June.

Evidence of a unique geological event, the 19th century slide which created the lake is easily observed at the lower end of the lake where scores of trees which rode down on the glide grow at odd angles. The headwall of the slide can also be visited via the Magone Slide Trail No. 353.

The well graveled walking trail has no steep pitches and total elevation range varies less than 25 feet. The trail is barrier-free, but unsurfaced, making it wheelchair accessible.
