The Watson Lake Loop Trail circles Watson lake through a network of connecting trail segments. The Northshore trail covers rocky steep terrain, the Over the Hill trail covers rocky and slightly more moderate terrain, and the Peavine and Lower Granite Creek Trail are flatter softer trails.

The Watson Lake Loop Trail is an amazing and challenging trail run. I started the loop at the southern part of the lake on the Lakeshore segment of the trail which is a beautiful wooded section of the trail. The trail then moves though the network of trails that traverse the large granite boulders of the Dells. This is where the trail becomes very challenging as you climb and jump across rocks as you make your accent around the northern part of Watson Lake.
