Jockeybush Lake promises a varied experience, from streamside hiking and stream crossings to lakeside camping and even a small waterfall. As with other short hikes, this one promises a great experience for beginning hikers and a pleasant trip for the whole family. The trail begins in the northwest corner of the pulloff, and the trail register is a few yards along the path. The trail is well marked with blue trail disks and has no intersections, so finding your way is straightforward. Roughly 0.3 mile in, you cross a seasonal stream that has a few mucky spots, and you will likely have to find a crossing off the trail
