SKYLINE 
LAKE MARIE ROAD

Home

Trail Description:
While Lake Marie Road isn't the most scenic trail in the park, it did provide a relatively dry path during this inclement weather.  It also provides some nice views,  is a relatively easy (though constant uphill) hike, and passes a number of interesting hillside excavations. The reward is Marie Lake at the end.
