Long Description:
Lakeside trail is the one most folks will take in Bays Mountain park. The official 2.3 miles will take 90 minutes on the maintained path with moderate uphill climbs. A few benches are scattered along the trail. The trailhead is across the reservior dam. The actual "Lakeside Trail" sign is missing in the default picture, but the distance sign remains. Bays Mtn know about this problem and will have it repaired sometime. See Waymark M52ZX for pictures along the trail.
