Gina K. on Indian Trail
A bit underwhelming if you're expecting a nice, quick challenge. My advice would be to travel an extra 8ish miles to nearby Mount Tammany for more of an incline and in my opinion, better views. If you do insist on hiking this trail, rest assured it is well-marked; also, we found the quickest way to get there was by following "Rim Road, Stroudsburg" in the GPS.
The lake is a beautiful destination. Rocky trails, but we enjoyed it. Not well marked so use the app to help. Basically taking rights will get you to the lake when there is splits in the roadThere is a short cut to the right too that brings you to the edge of the lake that is marked.
Amazing views. Not difficult, my 8 yr old completed without any issues. Trail was rocky for the most part. Was a little nervous seeing the warning for the healthy amount of rattle snakes but luckily we didn't see any. Plan to go back to do the other tails when the leaves are changing.
