Darby's Reasons to Love this Hike!
- Loop around this 1.25 mile lake watching people on the paddle boards and canoes, folks trout fishing, folks having a picnic, bikers, walkers, just all around outdoor fun for the whole family (the two AND four legged members).
- After a loop around the Elk Meadows Dog Park, take in a picnic and stroll around this beautiful lake. Make sure that you are walking on the paved path that runs along Hwy 74 and not the dirt path by the fisherman. I doesn't go all the way around.
- To get around the dam, you could walk down the stairs go across and then back up the stairs, or you can stroll downtown Evergreen for some shopping and/or dining options.
