route 247 73 0 0
Step out on this trail in June as I did and summer welcomes you. From the parking loop pay your dues and head on over towards the lake lookout. The trail takes off from the right and goes down immediately.


You can follow the trail in either direction. The trail is not clearly marked, there could be better signs and trail maintenance. Not to worry it's no big deal you will get around with no problem. Along the south side of the lake is a boat ramp. Camping sites with several trails working down to the lake are along the west side of the lake. On this day the lake was packed with the loudest idiots Arizona had to offer. It was kind of funny really but anything but peaceful. Canoes and paddle boats filled the lake like a movie. Several good spots along the east shore were tempting to sit down and relax. Maybe to read a book or just watch the lake action. As a plane zoomed above I could only wonder if Patrick Swayze was enjoying a cold one in the pilot seat.
