In our immediate neighborhood: We are lucky to be located on the lake side of the highway, so no need to cross it to get to lake!! You can walk to Skylandia Park & Beach with picnic tables, restrooms, and gentle paths that meander through the woods to a secluded, locals' sandy beach and pier. On your way there you can grab a coffee, sandwich, or special pastry at Sugar Pine Cakery, located on Lake Forest Road. Or if you are shorter on time - head straight down Bristlecone to amazing views of the lake from rocky Lake Forest Beach. Additional playground and lake views also available near the Coast Guard Boat Launch site (see all links provided)
