Green Lakes State Park's outstanding features are its two glacial lakes surrounded by upland forest. Both Round and Green Lakes are meromictic lakes, which means that there is no fall and spring mixing of surface and bottom waters. Such lakes have a high potential for evidence of ancient plant and animal life. Another special feature of the park is the 18-hole Green Lakes State Park Golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones, where visitors can snowshoe in winter, and there are 10 miles of trails that cross-country skiers can use.

My favorite trail!

Awesome area, can get crowded during peak seasons and weekends.

The section east of Green Lakes State Park is unpaved and better for running. Parking is just across the road from the trail access, before the ticket entrance to Green Lakes State Park.

walking is great. scenery is awesome. people are friendly and respectful of others. dogs are all well behaved

It was very pretty, the lake was so clear and pretty. The trail wasn't difficult. there were a lot of people walking with dogs

beautiful and peaceful. rent canoe or kayak. great for kids or just adult

Like the trail for riding, except for partially gravel be awesome if the pave it,make for a smoother ride. Other than that great trail to ride, did 20 miles.
