Located adjacent to the Laura
Lake Campground, this trail circles Laura Lake and passes
through a forest of northern hardwoods, hemlocks, and balsams.
Bring your binoculars as there are frequent observations of loons
and osprey on this quiet lake, which is restricted to electric
motors only. A bench is located along the shoreline at the half-way
point. A short walk to the north leads to a small bog lake that
you may want to explore. Look for the white diamond-shaped reassurance
markers that designate this trail.
