Located on the north shore of Clear Lake, this interpretive trail forms a lollipop loop that is accessible for all users. The paved trail is flat and less than a mile in length, making it the perfect short outing. The trail starts out from the Clear Lake Day Use Area parking lot.

As part of Audubon Washington's Sun and Sage Loop, which is a network of bird viewing areas in Southwest Washington, this area is known as a great spot for bird watching. Look for interpretive signs along the trail to learn more. Visitors can also take advantage of the other amenities including picnic tables, charcoal grills, a shelter and a vault toilet.
