About Lake of the Winds

This 8-mile out-and-back route with minimal climbing begins at Fort Hoskins Historical Park and heads south to the entrance of a Girl Scout camp on the shores of the Lake of the Winds (Camp Whispering Winds). It is a good route to combine with the Fort Hoskins to the Old Railroad Grade route (which is 26 miles with 1130' of climbing).
