nice trail especially if you park by the dam and walk across the bridge to access it. not well marked but easy enough to navigate if you grab a park map. this trail loop is within the Lackawanna state park.

Didn't push through. There were no signs for the trail so we didn't find it. We only found the parking but no information about the trail. It feels creepy!

The location for this market is incorrect. The true location for seven tubs is west of this marker in the seven tubs nature area.

It's a pretty trail a little but rocky at times wish the trail was longer though. It is scenic with the creek and the mini waterfalls.

Snowflake is good for beginners. Frost Hollow is slightly more challenging, but both are nice trails to hike!

Trail head was well marked and trails were nice however markers were odd. Different than Lackawanna State Park map. I expected to run into trail marker for Tree Line Trail and I never did. Stick to yellow markings, blue sets you off into Conservatory trail. Was a nice quick hike otherwise. Popular with mountain bikers.

A multitude of trails through the state park. Nice hike, easy, 4 miles or so from parking lot 5 to bullfrog pond via Northwoods trail. Orange trail at trail head than red trail to blue than yellow. Orange trail also runs a few miles and is used for mountain biking.

Easy hike, clear path in woods along lake. Trail head for loop taken from waterfalls/bridge using orange marker which led to Frost Hollow Trail. Trails marked well. Great for mountain biking as well.
