Bull Run Lake Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The focal point for hot and tired hikers arriving at Bull Run Lake is an inviting granite island, which attracts swimmers like flies. Unless you are completely unselfconscious, pack a bathing suit for yourself, life vests for the non-swimmers, and fishing poles for everyone, then plan to spend a long day at this delightfully accessible lake. Bull Run Lake is reached by a relatively short 3.7-mile trail, making it an ideal day trip. The lake is also a relaxing backpacking destination with spacious campsites. On weekends the lake can be very crowded. Ambitious hikers can take the basic hike and turn it into a loop as described below."
