Just beyond Mill Bay Beach is a lovely improved trail that starts a short way up Antone Way on the left. There is a nice parking area and trailhead sign. The trail parallels Island Lake Creek, which tumbles steeply through the woods over falls and boulders. This is a good place to see dippers, as well as forest birds such as winter wrens, varied thrush, chickadees, nuthatches and creepers. In summer and fall silver and pink salmon migrate up the creek to the lake. You can sometimes see them in the pools or jumping the cascades.
