Oak Grove Trail

Oak Grove Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This hike leaves from the shoreline of a popular boating and swimming access at Yellowstone Lake State Park. Walk a wooded draw, then rise to hills above Yellowstone Lake. Here, you can gain partial views of the lake valley. The hike then traverses woods and meadows and even passes through a small gorge before returning to the trailhead. The wide, mown path and excellent trail signage make this hike a breeze.

This particular hike explores the hills and hollows draining into Yellowstone Lake. Finding the Oak Grove Trail’s beginning may be the hardest part of the entire hike. You will easily spot a sign for the Oak Grove Trail near the four-way intersection of Lake Road, the campground access road, and the primary boat launch, however, you will not see a pathway entering the woods. The trail has been rerouted."

The wide mown path and excellent trail signage make this hike a breeze. The hiking trails are just one fine reason to visit and explore Yellowstone Lake State Park. The state park is centered on 450-acre Yellowstone Lake. The tarn attracts swimmers, anglers, and boaters. This includes motor-oriented boaters as well as paddlers. The campground is set up in several wooded hilly loops with ample restrooms, showers, and water spigots." Read more
