The Phillips Lake South Shoreline trail begins on the south side of Mason Dam and ends near Southwest Shore Campground. The trail traverses the southern banks of the lake (actually a reservoir) through grasslands and young ponderosa pine trees. It is a scenic trail and offers outstanding views of the lake and the Elkhorn Mountains for summer and winter travelers. Numerous coves and inlets provide opportunities for viewing waterfowl, shore birds, and occasionally deer and elk. The multi-season trail is popular with hikers, mountain bikers, horseback riders and for Nordic skiing and snowshoeing.
This trail is generally clear of snow from May to mid October. Expect winter debris (down trees, etc) in the early season.
