We drove in on the beautiful Howell Mt. Road and parked near the
Conn Creek bridge. From here the trail heads southeast and roughly followed
the shoreline. It's a short trail which starts off wooded and then opens up
as you near the dam. There were few flowers, but quite a few birds were
active in the woods as well as on the water.
See the park page for directions.
