  • The 1.9-mile run around the Horseshoe Lake Loop is mostly singletrack with a brief section at the end on the paved Lakes Basin Path. The dirt is soft but firm, the terrain is mostly flat with a few gentle ups and downs, and the woods provide plenty of shade on a warm day. Head out counter-clockwise from the parking area. Run around the lake once or add a second lap for a longer run. This is also a great place for interval training! Complete the workout with an open-water swim across the lake, out and back. Be aware that even in the height of summer the water is cold, so bring a wetsuit!
