Hike To Lake Canopus

1 Miles Round Trip - Out-and-Back Trail

Canopus Lake - Search Nearby - Added by Kastriot Xhakli

Short and a sweet hike with a beautiful view of the lake and awesome sunset, especially in the fall.

Its a great place to explore as it has a beautiful calm lake especially in the fall, the reflection of the water and the awesome colors are unbelievable. Its a short hike but you certainly could go further up.

Parking is free by the road, hike towards the lake about a mile or so. The sound of birds above you as you take this hike its pretty impeccable.

In the middle of the lake there is an area where you could take a moment and bask in the beauty of both sides of the lake, the views are completely different as when the sun hits one side the other side is more colorful, and you should definitely take some snacks and just enjoy the sunset.

Great little loop

Beautiful place, can swing wildly between being very busy and very quiet. Great place to trail run laps or get the dog out, just keep them on a leash. Bonus points for having camping nearby if you're coming from out of the area and need a place to call home base.
