Two large forest lakes lie within 1 mile of the parking area. The first, Lake Evan, is just off the road—convenient for parents of toddlers who seek a wooded picnic spot. The second, Boardman Lake, with only 200 feet of trail elevation, is deeper, cleaner, and larger and offers trout fishing and views of Bald Mountain. Children will enjoy wading and splashing from the shore, whether the stay is for a day or overnight.
