Gibbs Lake Hike and Picnic

On June 29, 2016, we joined for a summer hike at Gibbs Lake County Park, a peaceful spot with lots of fir and mature cedars. The trail around the lake is approximately 1.75 miles and offers intermittent views of the lake.

We hiked around the lake and then had a wonderful picnic lunch together at the beach. Those brave enough to manage the cool waters, took a swim. Often the water is clear, clean and beautiful.
