The Lakeside Trail is a 1 mile moderate trail that is accessible from the Running Cedar Trail, the Pine Knob Trail, the concession/picnic area, and from the Willis River Trail. It mainly passes around the north part of the lake and through the picnic area. Like most other trails here, this one is fairly flat. Hikers should use caution however, as in some places the trail can be very narrow, close to the lake, and have many roots running over the path. A hiker who isn’t careful could end up in the lake! This trail provides access to the Quail Ridge Trail as well as to the Circumferential Trail.
