Hike the Dam Drop Loop

Rate this Adventure 2.5 miles 223 ft gain  - Loop Trail

Added by Danielle Martin

A small wooded park for hiking and mountain biking.

Starting at the parking lot at the top of the hill there are great views of the lake. As you descend on the criss-crossing trails, be careful of crumbling rocks. At the bottom of the park which borders the river just below the dam, you will find waterfalls and a pool.Trails are not well marked, so it is easy to get lost.
