Crawford and Pilot Peninsula Trails

Pilot Peninsula is the smaller one with the Lighthouse on it. The larger one is the Crawford Peninsula. There can be confusion between the two due to the access road being called Pilot Point FSR. These trail networks offer both hiking and mountain bike areas and is the most concentrated trail network on the East Shore. 

Recreation Master Plan

The purpose of this plan is to define a strategy for providing a community wide trail network which links neighborhoods, parks, schools, commercial areas, adjacent communities and open spaces.
