Description – Loyal reader and schoolhood friend Marybeth recently went for a hike on the Batsto Lake White Trail and was nice enough to share her pictures! This is the last trail at Batsto I haven’t done, but the Batsto Lake Red and Blue Trail are so great, that this one has to be just as nice!
Note that the White Trail overlaps with the Red and Blue trails for good stretches, and follows the Batona Trail for quite a stretch!
The picture comments are Marybeth’s!
Big thanks to Marybeth for sharing her hike!
Some nice pine forest, but mostly beautiful lake views.
No real negatives.
