Crown Hill Lake Loop

Crown Hill Lake Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A paved, accessible trail circles a pretty lake in a city park that has been designated a national urban wildlife refuge. On a lunch break, after the kids are dropped at school, in the hour before dinner, right before sunset—there’s always time for a turn around Crown Hill Lake.

That’s not all that recommends this urban park. The lake loop is also fully accessible. And It’s part of a protected wildlife refuge, so chances are better than excellent that the bird watching, in particular, will be great. Birds, including red-winged blackbirds, killdeer, and the ubiquitous Canada geese, as well as coyotes, voles, foxes, and squirrels, may be sighted along the trail.

The wildlife sanctuary is closed from Mar 1 to June 30 to protect nesting birds."

"The easiest ride in the book is a gentle cruise around scenic Crown Hill Lake, on a concrete bike path. A sign next to the path around Crown Hill Lake pretty much sums up this ride: SPEED LIMIT 10 MPH. Now that’s casual. This outing is dedicated to the slowpokes, gawkers, and dawdlers out there; also elderly folks, kids, and their families. There’s no danger from motor traffic on this ride, which circles beautiful Crown Hill Lake on a smooth concrete path, but pedestrian and/or dog traffic is often fairly thick. True to its very casual nature, this path is as much a walking path as it is a bike trail." Read more
