Beautiful view of the lake at many spots. It is a doubletrack loop with just a few switchbacks. Not technical at all. Has many grassy areas to cross between sections of timber.
How to get there:
From Springfield, take 125 West to just past Ashland. Turn North following the signs to Jim Edgar Panther Creek State Park (JEPC). Follow signs to the superintendant's office, trailhead is to the left just before the office.
