True to its name, Pearl Lake is a gem of a park, quiet and restful. It’s the perfect place to watch sandhill cranes from your canoe, with a pristine setting that inspires photographic and artistic excellence. American marten, long-tailed weasel, and pine squirrel are just some of the wildlife species seen at this altitude. Be sure to bring your camera or watercolors!
