Bruce Lake Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This trail takes you through a rocky forest section as you hike toward the narrows of Egypt Meadow Lake, where you can view the dark waters of this man-made lake. The trail then follows an old logging road to spring-fed Bruce Lake, a glaciated lake. As you circle Bruce Lake, you’ll come to an old-fashioned water pump.

There are two provisos before starting this hike: First, there are two Bruce Lake Natural Area parking lots; be sure to start this hike at the northernmost parking area, which is just 0.1 mile south of I-84. This is also the parking area for Egypt Meadow. Second, if there are no trail maps at the trailhead bulletin board, contact the Promised Land State Park office and get a Promised Land Trail System map."
