Reflection Lake Trailhead

The Reflection Lake trail is 2.5 miles long. The first ½ mile of the trail was reconstructed in 2005, and from Short Bay it parallels the east side of Reflection Creek. Approximately ½ mile from Short Bay the trail crosses the creek and climbs into open muskeg. It reaches the outlet of Reflection Lake, passes a three-sided Adirondack shelter, and ends at a Forest Service cabin.
