This 2-mile hike crosses over a spillway area before heading uphill on a rocky, at times steep, trek that leads to a panoramic overlook of the park’s 528 acres, including Cedar Lake on the west fork of Camp Creek. The hike continues through a forest of ash and juniper trees to a peaceful resting spot with the option of taking a dip in the lake before heading back to the trailhead. There’s also an adjacent 1-mile trail along Camp Creek that offers prime birding opportunities.
