This trek combines several interconnected hiker-only trails on a high peninsula overlooking Deer Creek Lake. Start on the Ridge Trail, passing a wildlife blind before opening onto a grassy hill above the lake and your ?rst aquatic panoramas. The second loop, the appropriately named Lakeview Trail, presents better reservoir views. Then comes the Waterloo Trail, which takes you along a wooded ?at and to more overlooks on the lake. The ?nal trail, Adena Ridge, is the most scenic of them all. It leads along a slender hilltop jutting into the water. Vistas open as you descend to the shore and a point, where a gravel beach awaits. Your return trip from the beach travels along a blu? with still more views.
