(0.22 MILES)

The Scenic Overlook Trail is a short trail of 0.22-miles that diverges from the Wilderness Lake Trail at the Civilian Conservation Corps stone shelter. This trail descends slowly through the Nature Preserve forest to a rewarding view of Wilderness Lake from above. Many turtles can be observed sunning themselves upon logs in the water. The Kingfisher’s rattling call can often be heard in this area of the lake, and other water-loving birds may be spotted as well. Hikers will have to return using the same route.
