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.

Not sure if I followed the right trail since I ended up walking on the road for some of it and didn't end up at an overlook but it was still a nice hike and will have to try again next time. I like the trails though they are relatively easy to follow and the lake is beautiful to hike near.

Really enjoyed this one! Our first hike of the year, and like other folks said it was fairly steep but a short hike. Views were great but fairly limited (it's an overlook, no 360° views). Entrance fee to the park was $8, which seemed like a bit much considering we were only there a couple hours. Next time we'll plan a day or camping trip.

Great moderate, there is a good map at the entrance for two bucks -- that plus a phone gps makes it easy to navigate! !

just did this trail today after work. It was a bit of a workout but the view at the top was totally worth it. starts out pretty easy until you hit the last 1/3 of the trail where there is steep rocky terrain.

this trail is located on a state forest where "campsites" (more like cabins) are located nearby, so be prepared to pay an entry fee if you go during the summer months. I thought this trail was heavily trafficked with campers, so if you're looking for a quiet hike I'd go elsewhere. Other than that, it was enjoyable!

Pretty easy trail but currently way too icy to summit. You'll be disappointed ☹️. Definitely going to try this again in the Spring!

Nice, easy hike with decent views of Moreau Lake and mountains to the east. Park as a lot of connecting trails of varying degrees of difficulty and nice views.

Not so easy. We were nearby and thought we'd introduce my Autistic son to hiking with this trail. While some parts were easy, there were sections of steep slopes covered in rocks that were difficult at times. The. View at the top is worth the struggle. It's a great workout and one woman we met on the trail uses it to train for high peaks hikes.
