Our permitted walk route starts from the pavilion at Chadwick Lake Park. There are two options for walking. The 4 mile walk begins at 10:00 am and covers the entire lake and the 2.5 “Lupus Loop” begins at 10:30 am for a shortened version. All walkers will meet on the walk route and walk back to the pavilion together. Please respect the volunteers directing traffic on the route.


There are bathrooms located at Chadwick Lake Park near the pavilion.
