The Powder House Trail is a one mile long, moderate difficulty, multi-use trail that passes through the woods along the south side of the lake and connects the Fisherman’s Run Trail to the Lake Trail. This trail is a bit rougher than the adjoining trails and features moderate changes in elevation. The trail obtains its name from the restored CCC powder house located nearby. The powder house was used by the Civilian Conservation Corps to store blasting powder and dynamite during the construction of the park and its trail system. Its somewhat remote location and fire or spark resistant construction was insurance against the ever present danger of explosion.
