It's a wonderful walk
we were here for the first day of fall. I was impressed with the amount of park in this park. you could walk here everyday for a month and not take the same route twice. bring bug spray.
Great walk! Beautiful
Beautiful walk in downtown Princeton with Lake views and beautiful scenery. a lot of The trails are in the woods so it's cool and shady in summer which is nice and you can make it as long as you want or short as you want so it's flexible for family with kids or a great work out at a fast pace
ideal for family.
Nice easy going trail whether your biking it or hiking it. Last year hiked with our dog and he picked up a LOT of ticks.
Great local find.. Wish I knew about this one earlier.. Trails and Park are very well kept.. Well marked trails lead for a great time.. Great water crossings with bridges.. Very scenic and somewhat challenging terrain...
For an easy to moderate hike, there was interesting terrain and scenery. Fairly isolated, except some fishermen around the lower lake. Great cicada sounds in the trees. Many trail spurs, but pretty easy to find your way back to the start.
Great with a dog!
The lowest lake loop trail wasn't maintained & I had to turn back.
I walk the trails as often as I can. It's such a beautiful fun area! Definitely worth it.
The mountain biking on the trails in the Mountain Lakes area is very fun. It is not fast but at times it can be challenging or eliciting because of the the many roots and rocks. With the many trails there are so many options to decide where you want to go, how much you want to bike, and how challenging you want the ride to be.
