Great for everyone who wants to be outside

I never get tired of going there! The water is such a beautiful color, and so clear. The trail is very flat and easy to do. There's a great picnic area and beach too!

Beautiful scenery and views of the lakes all around. Wished we could swim in the lake but it’s only allowed in designated area at the beginning of Green Lake. There is the option of Kayak if interested with the addition of the cleaning ones which is a plus.

Nice trail circling both lakes with options to bear off onto other off lake trails. Pavilions for picnicking and the views of the lake are just amazing. Clear teal water.

Again, mostly flat with trails through meadows and the forest

Easy and mostly flat.

Easy, heavily traveled trail with gorgeous views and photo ops of the lakes.

Mostly flat; great for running!

beautiful lake. easy trail

Wonderful trail - even on busier weekends you can escape the noise.

Well maintained trails around a beautiful clear lake. Do yourself a favor and visit on a weekday morning to avoid crowds. This is definitely worth it. So unique for New York State. There are sections with coral that resemble the Caribbean.

Beautiful walk around the lakes with well-groomed trails.

Always a great time, I frequently come here with my dogs.

very crowded around lake..other trails were great

always great

Nice section of the canal, for misc activities

Dislike that it is now paved. Making it harder on the knees for running.
