Did a half loop of a newer trail near the Playground parking lot. It is designated "hikers only" and is mostly dirt, fairly flat and wide. The trail was created by bulldozing a lane to encircle the land between the different campgrounds at the South Shore. Part of the land has been burned and there really isn't much scenery to see although you can see the lake (photo attached).
The trail is a good one if you want to go for a run but don't want to run on the pavement.
Water, shade, info kiosk and toilets available at Playground parking lot.
Water and toilets available near the mid-way point at a campground.
