Hike Summary: Hike starts next to sign by boat dock. It passes the cabins on the left side of the trail following the shore line over the lookout rock and a few small springs before it gets to the cut off for the pioneer short loop trail. The pioneer loop trail at this point continues straight until you hit a road with a bridge where you will walk across the road bridge then reenter the trail on the other side. There are a couple of small foot bridges over small springs along this section of the hike and it rejoins the other portion of the pioneer short loop trail on the other side of the lake beside the swinging bridge and then it winds around until it reaches the bridge beside the boat dock.
