The Connell Lake trail is 2.1 miles long. The trail leaves the parking area near the dam and traverses through forest, following the shoreline of Connell Lake. The trail then continues up to Talbot Lake where the trail ends. The trail is a combination of boardwalk and natural tread. You will find a wooden tent platform by following the boardwalk trail to the left at the lake, passing on your right a short spur trail to a viewing bridge.
