Lake Laura Trail
Don’t feel like swimming, but still want the view? Take a walk on the relaxing nature trail that wraps around the entire lake. The trail is open daily all year long and takes anywhere from one-and-a-half to two hours – an easy to moderate hike for all ages. The Lake Laura Trail is beautiful any time of year and a fun activity with children as young as four years. Note: Lake Laura Trail is not handicap accessible. Start from the Lake Laura Beach Area, the parking lot at the base of the dam, or the boat launch parking lot on the southern end of the lake.
