Schooner Trail

The Schooner Trail is a newly marked hiking trail through natural forests,  featuring many large boulders, a high elevation scenic jaunt, and a steep limestone hillside, all on the west shore of Long Schooner Lake. The trail heads north from the end of Schooner Road, then zig-zags northwest up the “The Climb”, and swings back east along the “Upper Ridge Walk” toward Long Schooner Lake.  The trail finishes with a quick and steep descent to a nice mellow lakeside walk along Long Schooner Lake, and it then meets back to the beginning of the trail. The entire loop is approximately 3 kilometers, and covers just over 100 meters of elevation.
