This is a short and easy hike which is great for kids. If you are not camping at the park, there is a day use fee but well worth it for the excellent swimming area.
Are you camping in the area of blue ribbon winners? If not, see below. If so find the path that leads to the pines on the sandy shores. The path begins with an island of trees go either right or left and head down the path but be careful of the eroded path on the right. Between the old posts, you will find a swampy area. Can you find any frogs or fish in the water? From the second post take an average of 83 steps (based on a 9&13 year olds step). If you are there in the spring you may sight a trillium in bloom or the large red seed in the summer months. To your right you will see a group of white birch trees and a path to your left. Take a left down the path. **You will see a fallen tree directly to the right as you enter the path. The path is very narrow and make sure to be careful of fallen branches. Follow the path until you reach the decomposing stump of a fallen tree. You will see moss growing on the North side of the tree. Turn and face NNW and you will see a tri-trunk tree. Walk to the tree. Turn and face West. Do you see a white birch tree? Go to the white birch and you will find the box in some white birch bark.
Are you spending a day on the sandy shores? If so can you find the path that leads to the camping area of blue ribbon winners?

If you are there in the spring you may sight a trillium in bloom or the large red seed in the summer months. To your left you will see a group of white birch trees and a path to your right.
