Lets hike and enjoy Mexican food afterward!
Whether by foot, bicycle, ski or horseback, you can explore Herrick Lake via several multipurpose trails that feature benches and numbered trail markers to guide you along the way. A path around the lake connects both parking lots to the picnic grounds and the trailhead, and additional trails cut through the central and southern parts of the preserve. In the winter, trails are groomed for classical and skate-style cross-country skiing when conditions permit.
