Oak Openings Hiking Trail

One of the only true long distance hiking trails in the area, the trail encircles the park and gives hikers access to virtually all the features of the other trails combined. Access the trail at the Mallard Lake, Springbrook, Evergreen Lake or White Oak Campground areas. Many hikers find it enjoyable to leisurely explore the trail over two days.

The trail is sometimes called the Scout Trail because of its popularity and long history with local scouts. Boy Scouts have used the trail to earn their hiking merit badge for more than 60 years.

Because it is maintained as a primitive trail, expect to find occasional down trees and wet areas.
