lake

Moreau Lake State Park's lake lies amid hardwood forests, pine stands and rocky ridges. Shady groves of trees shelter picnic grounds and a pavilion overlooking the lake. Wooded campgrounds are quiet and secluded, offering facilities for group campers, as well as tent and trailer sites. The sandy beach, nature, hiking and cross-country ski trails, opportunities for boating, fishing and ice fishing, and proximity to the Saratoga Springs and Lake George areas make the park attractive to visitors. A wooden pavilion with a 120-person capacity and three canvas tents, which can accommodate from 35-50 people, may be reserved on a daily basis. In the summer, beach lounges, beach umbrella and fishing gear can be rented. In the winter, snowshoes are available for rent daily. Located on the beach road is our vacation rental. The Lake Shore Cottage provides everything from a refrigerator, stove, dishes and utensils to a screened porch, bathroom with shower, bedding, pillows and a cozy fireplace.

Nice hike to do with the family

Nice loop for the family.

We took the shorter route from the parking lot near the beach. It's only about 2 miles round trip from this point as you'll pick up the trail halfway through.

But just because it's short doesn't mean it's easy. It's a pretty steady incline the entire time until you reach a pretty nice little lookout.

Great short hike to take if you want a quick sweat before dipping in the lake!

Moderate trail with a steep section as you get to the top. Well worth it if you time it right with great views.

We took the connecting path from within Moreau State Park. It can be steep and rocky in some areas so it's appropriately labelled Moderate but not too difficult for kids and dogs. The view from the top is worth it!

Beautiful and fun hike and rewarded at the lookout with a gorgeous rainbow!

EASY A relaxed circular walk around the upper portion of Moreau Lake and Mud Pond. A few gentle slopes and a couple of narrow portions, but for the most part a pleasant walk through the woods around the lake and the pond. Dogs must be leashed. Occasional mountain bikers and horseback riders. You will see beaver lodges and water birds and hear bull frogs.

Wonderful hike with a great view at the top. Did it with my kids and dog.
