You can drive to Lake Elizabeth for short day outings to go picnicking and fishing. The trail circles the small lake through open and semi-open forest with easy hiking for families with small children and senior citizens. Heading around the lake to the north find a couple of good campsites along the east edge of the lake, one with a 180-degree panorama view of the lake.
