This popular hiking trail, located in the Lynx Lake Recreation Area, travels around Lynx Lake. The man-made, 55-acre lake attracts a diversity of wildlife. The bird watching here is particularly excellent. There may be osprey in summer. A range of songbirds and waterfowl, present year-round, stir the air with their varied calls.
The western half of the trail is paved and wheelchair accessible. The eastern half is a narrow dirt footpath. Ponderosa pines and other trees provide dappled shade along most of the route. The trail is a 2.3 mile loop and is good for all skill levels. Arrive a little before 9 am for sign in.
There is no fee for this event but please register. Dogs are permitted as long as they are leashed.
The event hosts are camping the weekend at Lynx Lake. You can find out more about the Lynx Lake Campout on the Desert Adventures calendar.
A limited number of vehicles can park at our group site. Contact the event hosts for availability. After our group site parking is full, you can park at South Shore, which is where the hike begins.
