The Eighteen Lake
From the parking lot, the trail heads south along the lake shore through mixed conifers; red and white pines, balsam firs, and cedars, with white birch thrown in for contrast. There are large white cedars at the south end of the lake where the trail crosses a small stream. On the west side of the lake there are dense stands of young softwood trees, and many signs of moose. Occasionally the trail will ascend steeply, but shortly, onto a ridge from which there are broad views of the lake. These ridge trails help to skirt wet places along the lake shore and provide some hiking variety. Fortunately there are a number of benches along the way, and rock outcroppings, where you can sit awhile, catch your breath, and enjoy the lake and the breeze in the trees.
