Mizzy Lake Trail


This trail requires an early start and a full day to do properly. It visits nine ponds and small lakes and affords some of the best chances to see wildlife in the Parkway Corridor. Dogs are not permitted on the trail. The north end of Mizzy Lake narrows down to a bay which is also a "meadow-in-the-making". Here a long boardwalk carries hikers to firmer ground through an area frequented by much wildlife.



The trail heads north under the forest cover, close along the east shore. Low beaver dams cross the in-filled vegetation mat, raising the lake level so that it sometimes impacts on the trail. Further north, one looks across the open water to the extensive vegetation mat with its transforming tree growth. Mizzy Lake is a long body of water, held back by a beaver dam at its south end. Its water levels, maintained over time, have allowed the lake's mid-section to fill in with a mat of vegetation.
