Island Trail

The trail begins near the front entrance of the lodge. The first 75 - 100 yards lead to a road crossing, then the trail splits into a loop which circles back to the beginning. Hardwoods predominate the forest canopy. The trail is located 50 - 60 feet from the lakeshore and provides the opportunity for solitude and scenic beauty.

Comment: This was a pretty fun trail located just adjacent to the Degray Lake Lodge. Perfect after lunch stroll. Very small elevations and good access to the beaches of the island. Definitely check it out

To ensure you enjoy your state park experience, be aware of the natural world. There are some areas which are potentially hazardous to all visitors. Since it is impractical to post signs at all danger points, use caution when approaching such areas as cliffs, caves, heavily wooded areas, swamps, streams, and lakes. Adults are responsible for children in their care. If unsure about possible hazards, check at the visitor center.
