Of course, Kansas lakes are sometimes only as blue as the sky is, but we love seeing them regardless. This beautiful hike is a loop that leads around to a gorgeous view of Clinton Lake’s crystal blue beauty. As long as the algae isn’t flaring, this lake is a sweet spot for summer photos. Come check out this great little trail!

For more information about the trail, closures, and more, you’ll want to keep an eye on the Clinton State Park Facebook page or the AllTrails listing where hikers update the status of certain paths.
