Game Lake Trail offers good views of the Illinois River drainage and on the upper end of trail there are some picturesque old pine and wild growing azalea and darlingtonia. A small creek, which is the lake outlet, trickles through a grassy meadow dotted with a variety of wildflowers. Game Lake itself is a shallow pond with hundreds of orange-bellied newts. The Silver Fire burn of 1987 can also be seen from the trail. Water and campsites are scarce.

Distance: 9.0 miles
