Perseverance Trail

The Perseverance Trail is 2.4 miles long. The first 1/2 mile winds gently and is composed of both natural tread and boardwalk. Rain, snow and ice make the wooden boards extremely slippery; take caution when hiking under those conditions. The trail ends at Perseverance Lake, which offers trout fishing and photographic opportunities. The trail also provides access to the Minerva Mountain Trail approximately 2 ΒΌ miles from the trailhead.
