This narrow, rough trail branches off of the Pioneer Trail to the east.
It is a short non-motorized trail that winds through the white pines and rock ridges to end at a picnic spot that overlooks Lac Barbotte.
This is a beautiful resting place approximately midway through the trail where Lac Barbotte discharges its’ excess water over smooth rocks and under the trail. It is interesting to note that the water level of Lac Barbotte is “managed” by nature’s engineers, the Beaver. There is a dam at the Western outlet of the lake as well as the South.
This area is an extraordinary area for bird watching. You can look out across the narrow section of lake and observe the conifers on the op- posite side simply alive with many species of birds.
Nearby is a gravelly mound where a series of short trails lead to the water’s edge.
Well worth a short detour to enjoy the view and the peaceful setting.
