Drake Lake Sampler Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This loop makes a circuit near the least visited of the three lakes at Jim Edgar Panther Creek State Fish and Wildlife Area. It leaves the parking area to bisect its dam, and then rambles through thick woods to the far shore. Hikers then backtrack to the dam and drop into hilly terrain, crossing a deep valley before looping back to the trailhead. The defined distance of this hike is short, but the Drake Lake Trail makes a four-plus-mile loop around the lake; additional trails are available, including a connector to Prairie Lake and its Lake side Trail. A complete park trail map is available at the park office, which you pass on the way in."
