Silver Lake Trail

The trail around the lake and its associated wetlands is about a mile long, most of it along a wheelchair accessible boardwalk. There are picnic tables, interpretive signs, and fishing access points along the route. For the adventurous hiker, several other trail junctions intersect with the Silver Lake Loop trail including the Twin Lakes Trail, Lake Solitude Trail, and the Brighton Lakes Trail. At the Silver Lake Visitor’s Center you can pick up a trails map and an excellent wildflower guide of the area offered for sale by the Cottonwood Canyons Foundation.
