This gentle climb to pretty Lily Pad Lake is a treat for the whole family. The trail passes through typically dry lodge- pole pine forest with sparse vegetation. Several ponds, a creek, and other wet areas produce tall grasses, willows, and wildflowers. A smaller lake is almost covered in pond lilies, while the larger lake supports a few of the plants along with an old beaver lodge.
