    Blackhand Trail

    Corkscrew Falls

    1 mi / 35 ft gain

They were not super, descriptive details, so most of the time I wandered around till I found the trail. There is no...

    Hike the Pew Island Trail, Indian Lake

    1 mi
    I hiked this trail on a very cold, blustery day. A winter storm was blowing in across the ice and temperatures were downright frigid. Nevertheless, this trail was enjoyable and offered some great views of the lake. It is a very easy one mile loop and has a couple of side trails for fishing and hu...
