Lakeshore National Recreation Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Completed in 1998, the Lakeshore National Recreation Trail offers pedestrians and casual-paced bicyclists interludes with central Utah’s aquatic jewel— Fish Lake—and the forested slopes that cradle it. The route is nearly 9 miles long from Mallard Bay on the southern tip of Fish Lake to the Lake Creek Trailhead on the northern end. But you don’t have to knock off the whole route at once. Embark from one of several trailheads mid-route and ride in either direction.

Then make an about-face and enjoy the trail from a different perspective. Interpretive signs along the trail tell about the area’s prehistoric, human, and geologic history. Take the kids and make a day of it by casting a line from shore or having lunch at a lakeside lodge. If you are a member of the Polar Bear Club, then you can brave the lake’s frigid waters with a mid-route plunge. Tread: Dirt, sand, and gravel multi-recreational trail."
