This trail runs from the Stilling Basin to the Dry Brooks Day Use Area, and can be traveled in either direction. The trail can be accessed via several trail heads. It is a combination of dirt/grass lanes and singletrack trail passing through forests and fields, offering many views of the lake. The trail varies in terrain along its length, and can be completed in segments. Experienced hikers, bikers, and equestrians can complete the trail in its entirety in less than a day. However, it is recommended that you allow sufficient time, carry adequate liquids, and notify someone of your plans and follow trail markers carefully. The trail is marked with brown posts with white directional arrows. Information provided by BLUE MARSH LAKE Trail System map, available at the Visitor's Center and most trailheads.
