The Spring Road Trail follows the edge of Lake Auburn on a wide gravel road that is gated at each end. Numerous viewpoints are available on the edge of the road, showcasing sweeping views of Lake Auburn.
The trail is wide with a largely packed gravel surface. Some areas have loose stones. There are gradual hills. At the gates, the trail openings are approximately 25 inches wide.

As Lake Auburn is the sole source of drinking water for Lewiston, Auburn, and surrounding communities swimming is not allowed. Dogs are also not allowed in the water. The regulations for Lake Auburn prohibit all body contact, even your hands from touching the water. The fines are hefty, up to $2500.00 for each violation.
