Beautiful

It was a beautiful hike. Had such a nice time. Super wet with snow on this gorgeous February day!

why does the sign say "no entry written permission only " ?? should you list this trail if its not open to the public?? Disappointed, drove all the way out here and not able to walk!

we went out to hike this and there are 2 significant drawbacks. One, the driving directions to get thee are wrong. We ended p in down town coopers town and had to ask for directions. The second problem we ran into was that the only marked trail was about a mile. There are other trails that I plan on going back to see if we can fine the 6.7 miles, but our experience this weekend was disappointing. The tower was beautiful though.

Nice easy hike that meanders through the forest. Saw a few deer.

kind of a boring hike but pretty and we came across two deer

Easy trail, plenty of wildlife.

We do this trail once a year while we're visiting Glimmerglass Lake. It is a well maintained and easy to follow trail with parking just off from the trailhead. If you continue down past the entrance to the trail there is a nice stone bench overlooking the lake and it's a good spot to catch a quick pre-hike snack. The trail starts off steep and runs through the woods, there isn't a lot of scenery but there is a small amount of wild life (squirrels, chipmunks, and birds) that you will encounter. As you crest the hill and start heading back down in elevation it starts to get a little muddy, but that's nothing to worry about most times of the year. The trail ends over past the "tin top" and the Hyde Hall visitor center nearby. You will need to walk down the "roadway" owned by Hyde Hall to get back to the parking lot at the trail head so now is a great time to stop and visit the Hall as well! If you time it good, you can finish up the hike right before a tour starts.
