Three special points of interest in Yankee Springs are: Devil's Soupbowl, a glacially carved kettle formation, Graves Hill Overlook and The Pines. The park has mountain biking, horseback riding trails, fishing piers, beaches and nine lakes for fishing and lots of winter activities.

This is my first review and am learning the system. Wasn't sure where to post since we walked on both the Hall Lake Trail and the Deep Lake Trail.

It was a gorgeous day and we had a great afternoon hiking the trails. We parked in the lot off of Gun Lake Road at the entrance to the Hall Lake Trail. We took Hall Lake Trail past Hall Lake (beautiful & calm, saw a family picnicking on the shoreline) and then up to Devil's Soup Bowl. From there, we turned right and took the Deep Lake Trail. This is where we ran into a problem. Somehow we got off the hiking trail and onto the mountain bike trail so I would recommend really keeping your eye out for the split. As the trail neared Gun Lake Road, we exited the trail onto Gun Lake Road and walked down it for about a mile until turning right on the North Country Trail near Hall Lake. We skirted the edge of Hall Lake and turned left back to parking lot. All in all, it took about 5.5 miles. Next time, will try to find a way to go on both Hall Lake and Deep Lake Trail without going on Gun Lake Road.

Fun trail. Fair amount of ups and downs with some roots and rocks. Ran bike path. Good workout.

Ran this for a 5 mile loop, many shortcuts throughout trail to make loops for desired mileage. Nice verdure forest, some views of deep lake. Lots of pines and ferns throughout trail. Decent gain and loss. Look out for mountain bikers.

Beautiful place! Will definitely visit again.

Great trail. We hiked about 6.5 miles of it and biked the first two, but several times the very confusing signage along the trail took us on a different route than shown in map. It is actually about 13 miles if you do the entire loop, not 10.8.
Many short cuts, options and links to other trails, but again, not well signed at all. There are directional arrows on the trail for mountain bikers, but the direction changes depending on the day of the week.
The trail is beautiful and well maintained. Many sandy (beach like) sections and the mountain biking is moderately difficult. The signs along the trail are the only real problem with this trail. There are old signs and new signs and they often contradicted each other. The park offers old blurry maps that have been photo copied too many times.
