Known for its popular camping area, Locust Lake State Park nestles on the side of Locust Mountain. The 52-acre Locust Lake is located between two campgrounds and is surrounded by beautiful forests. Hiking and fishing are popular activities in the 1,772-acre park.
there are multiple trails in locust lake SP. we did the "white oak trail" which had white blazes. it was listed as 4 miles. my "recording" of it showed it as 2.5 miles. it was moderate. Lots of roots and rocks. about half of trail was very narrow (overgrown), but navigable and easy to still follow. well marked. nice walk through the woods and up and down the "mountain". was looking forward to a longer hike, but it was nice enough.
Just recently returned from a 5 day camping trip to Locust Lake State Park. Ventured onto the white trail which meanders along the creek bed and then makes its way up the side of the mountain and back down again to meet up with the yellow and blue trails. Beautiful scenery and well maintained routes, although the trail narrows out as it makes its way up the side of the mountain where it is less traveled. Moderate level of difficulty, but easy to maneuver. Well marked trail with trees color coded along the way. Definitely recommend.
