We hiked up the Woodland Trail to the lake and then took the Lake Creek Trail down. Easy to moderate hike and would recommend. Good hike for early morning. Note that the parking lot fills up incredibly fast.

The preserve and visitor center is great. The trailhead for Phelps Lake is here too. Parking is very limited - we arrived at noon, and had to wait about 40 minutes for a parking spot. The Rangers made the wait worthwhile - they were engaging...More

This was one of nicest hikes we took all week. We started by walking through the center and learned a bit about the history of the area. We saw deer and a bear eating Huckleberries! It had rained so the temperature was perfect and it...More
