For directions to the Unique Area go to Ayers Lake Unique Area page.

Travel back the road from the parking lot at the peak for about 400 m (about half way down the first hill). The road starts to turn to the right. You should see a sign on your left next to an ATV trail saying Private Trail. Disregard this sign (put up by someone to keep people off the trail) and continue on the North ATV Trail. At 460 meters you will need to look for ribbons on your left. They mark an old ATV trail that was once used by ATVs to access the lake. Once you find the ribbon you have found the Lake Access Trail.

The Lake Access Trail starts by going through an old hardwood forest then drops down through a Hemlock ridge to a small stream. After crossing the stream the trail goes through mixed forest until it finally reaches the lake shore. The Lakeside Loop Trail follows the lakeshore to the right. The Lake Access Trail continues to the left. The trail crosses the outlet stream to the lake after a short distance. The trail continues past that point but hasn't yet been mapped.
