Description

The George O. Latham Trail is a pretty rural trail that is surrounded by distinct landscapes and provides multiple activities for hikers. The path is located in the Woodridge Primitive Park along Clinton Lake and encircles the entire park, with different terrain like crushed stone and packed soil.

The park the trail is located in offers over 450 acres of natural foods and fields, with a public space for picnics and outdoor activities. Surrounding the entire length of the park is the trail, which loops around the area and runs along the shore of Lake Clinton. The parking spaces for the trail start inside the park, where there are picnic tables, barbeque facilities, restrooms, water fountains, and shaded sitting areas in the parking area as well.

There is no rule that requires Fido to be on a leash, which will allow them plenty of space to run around and enjoy the trails freely. Since the trail loops, you can take the northern entrance or the eastern entrances. Both are covered in trees and provides lots of shade, but the northern entrance will run along Dry Creek and provides places to fish, where the east entrance is a quicker way to access Clinton Lake, open fields, and campsites.

There are 9 different campsites that run along the trail, along with natural beaches for fishing and swimming. Dogs are also welcome in the water, as long as you bring some clean-up bags to clean-up after them. Wildlife in the area include deer, squirrels, and chipmunks. After enjoying the long trail, you can camp in the free campsites or head back home with ease.

Be careful though, the entrancing views of the lake and gorgeous quiet forest may bring you and Fido right back the very next day to enjoy even more hiking!
