Two Lakes Trail in the town of Seward is a quick, easy and scenic walk suitable for all ages. The full trail is less than one mile, with little elevation change, is well-maintained and easy to follow, and loops around back to your starting point.
But easy doesn’t mean boring. The name doesn’t lie – the trail winds around two lakes, the first at the trailhead at the south point and the second at the north end. A small waterfall cascades down the imposing Mount Marathon from the west toward the north lake and makes for a perfect backdrop for photos.
Pine trees and moss fill your view with green, but watch out for the dreaded Devil’s Club plant! It’s fascinating to look at, but don’t touch its spikes!
Directions: From Highway 9 going through Seward, turn west onto B St. and take that until it ends. Go straight into the parking lot and around to the back of the building. Parking is available for the park and the trail.
