Park in the bike park parking area. The trail heads off to your left up the side. The trail is well maintained and well signed. You should have no troubles following the trail through the numerous intersections. This trail is a linear trail and we’d advise you to bring a lunch to eat at the top while you enjoy the views! Be sure to sign the log book at the top too!
White lake is a gorgeous lake! The water is so blue and clear in areas! And beware of turtles on the road! They are everywhere! As for the trail, we didn’t love the trail as much as the Flume trail, the views at the top were amazing and worth it! Next time we do this trail, we will most definitely bring a snack or lunch to eat at the top and enjoy the views for even longer!
