Whitman Spring Road Trail Description

The trail sits on the northwestern shore of Lake Auburn. A former roadway, the wide gravel path can accommodate various kinds of uses including, running, biking, walking dogs. And in the winter, the trail becomes perfect for cold weather activities like snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. It is also part of a wider snowmobiling network. The lakeside path provides sweeping views of the water, but any physical contact with the water is strictly prohibited as it is the water source for the city of Auburn. Dogs must also be kept leashed.

Parking and Trail Access

The northern trailhead is located near Holbrook Rd. From SR 4, head west on Lake Shore Dr. for about 2.7 miles. Make a left onto N Auburn Rd, then make another left onto Whitman Spring Rd Trail. The trailhead is directly across from Holbrook Rd. Park in the designated area just in front of the trail gate.

There is parking at the southern end of the trail too. Just off W Auburn Rd. branch right onto Whitman Spring Rd., and follow that til you reach the southern gate. Park along the street.

Whitman Spring Road Trail Reviews

awesome walk with the pups.

This is an old dirt road that’s been gated off at the end of the tar portion. Nice, flat, and wide with occasional views of Lake Auburn. It’s a favorite with local runners. We have encountered a few dogs off leash despite local ordinances so beware of that. A nice early morning walk or run.
