Very easy- it's a flat walk on a gravel path that leads to a paved circle around a lake

Nice easy enjoyable trail. Plenty of blooming rhododendrons in mid-July. Great views at the top of the trail at the Cone Manor.

The trail is well-kept and a great hike. My wife and I stumbled across it while completing The Maze and Apple Barn Trails at Bass Lake. Seeing Cone Manor is well worth the winding path which gradually climbs with each turn. You can drive to the manor, but the hike makes it all the more worthwhile.

love Cone Manor property. Beautiful horse trails and walking from the house to the lake then to the orchard.

I couldn't find the right trail on here to write this review for, so this will have to work.

I started at the parking lot of Bass Lake. I ran west around the lake and hit The Maze trail, ran up by the Apple Barn and instead of going up to the Cone Manor House, I ran back down Deer Park Road to Bass Lake and ran a loop around the lake to finish. This route put be at about 4 miles. The scenery is gorgeous on this route, not the hardest but still enjoyable.

Beautiful October weather and moderate level hike from Manor around Bass Lake and complete the loop. The old orchard was laden with apples--beautiful.
