Evergreen Lake

Darby's Reasons to Love this Hike!

  1. 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). 
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
