Legion Lake Trail is a great opportunity with its location right off the highway to for families and travelers to stop, grab some drinks and stretch out the legs. The trail only takes 20 or so minutes. Legion Lake is also popular with the park’s wildlife and buffalo are very often spotted in the area.
