The Batsto Lake White Trail (White blaze/marker) is about 4 miles start to finish. The trail is shared with the Batsto Lake Blue Trail (Blue blaze/marker) and the Batona Trail (Pink blaze/marker) for parts of its length.
I've enjoyed the use of this path through the woods for trail running. Easy on the legs yet a good workout.

This is the main State P & F site for both History and Hiking. Large visitors' center, huge 19th c. summer home of the Wharton family and a wide variety of trails to explore. I've been going there since the late 1940's and have yet to explore all the trails.

This was an excellent trail starting at Batsto Village, there are 3 loop trails, red (1 mile, easy), blue (1.8 miles, moderate), and white (4 miles, moderate). The trails take you to the lake and back to the visitor center parking lot. We took the blue trail, relatively sandy and flat with just enough ups and downs to get your heart rate going. Beautiful scenery, too.
