Miles of walking trails offer a great way to take in the mountain air while gazing at the tranquil water, mountain vistas, and wooded tranquility. The rolling hills of Bent Tree descend to Lake Tamarack, a pristine 110-acre lake stocked with trout and bass for hours of fishing enjoyment. Only electric powered boats and canoes are permitted, so quiet prevails across the sparkling water. There’s a beach for swimming, a playground, and two swimming pools, including a heated pool for adults only. A covered picnic area with barbecue grills overlooks the lake – perfect for a Sunday cookout with the grandkids!
