Trail Description:
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.

Trail Location:
See the park page for directions.
