Tubbs hill has lots of different trails. You can stay along the shoreline or head to the top or both. Close to town. Many people watch fireworks display from the hillside. A wild natural oasis to visit and recharge.

Relatively small area but centrally located and surrounded by the lake. This is a great place right downtown to get the feeling like you're out of the city. You won't be alone though! Lots of foot traffic.

Tubbs Hill is a great place to explore for kids. You have the best of both worlds either in the trees or on the water. The views are great. You can walk it all at once or stop off at one of the little beaches for a picnic. It's safe to go solo or in a group. I like that... More

Awesome trail right in town. Easy for all abilities. Bring a towel for your swim in the lake. Whether you use the beach at the point or jump from the rocks, a dip in the lake is a must in the summer. Tubb's is a fun trail, don't miss it when you are in town.

I often hike Tubbs hill with friends. It is easy enough for most, but do have giant boulders and tree roots that pop into the path in many places. Great nature walk but can get pretty populated in the summer.

This is an outstanding short hike. Within steps, you are totally out in nature walking along the lake or climbing up to the top of the hill. Gorgeous views, and it starts right in town.

This is a very easy hike but must be done. There are bridges to cross, beaches to investigate and views to enjoy. This is a gem in the heart of the city. Lots of lookout points, places to stop and relax.

A great family hike along the lake and around the hill. The trail is rocky in places but the views are awesome. Be sure and bring a camera along. We tend to walk to marker #12 and then turn around and walk back to get the full exposure to the lake.
