Trapper Lake Trail meanders around the 12-acre lake built in 1980 for fishing and wildlife viewing. From the Visitors Center, the trail leads down the hill, across Day-use 1 and across the bridge that spans the lake's feeder stream. The trail then takes the hikers varying distances from the lake's shoreline.
From Pocahontas, travel two miles west on U.S. 62, then go nine miles south on Hwy 166. Or, from Black Rock, take U.S. 63 to Hwy. 361, then go six miles north.
