Easy trail to follow. Their is only one area uphill that is moderate. Beautiful scenery off trail a bit by the lake. Didn't see any animals. Their was a giant stone wall in the middle of the hike that was pretty cool.

Great hike, went with my wife and 9 year old. Logged a total of 3 miles. Easier to start on the North side of the parking lot; it's a steep climb to start this way, so to finish 3 miles with this ascent would've been a different hike.

Steep in spots. Do start as recommended counterclockwise .... When you get to the end of the trail you'll be glad you did

Great trail to hike with a dog. You can access the lake about halfway through so I always let my pup swim and she is dry by the time we get back to the car. This is a pretty easy hike but it still feels like a hike rather than just an easy walk through the woods. This usually tales me about an hour.

I did this trail a few times. The best time to go is later in the summer when the water is low. I went off trail and walked the rocky shoreline .

The trailhead is in Lakeville, the other side of the lake from where the map shows .

Excellent trail, well marked and good fun hiking around the fabulous Lake Wallenpaupack. There are some steep climbs so wouldn't recommend to anyone with bad knees. This a regular hike we do on Saturdays in the winters as there is no hunting permitted and it's a great quick workout.
