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.

very light traffic, peaceful and easy trail.

Great hike, well marked from the trail head located at the inlet to Locast Lake.

There are also two Geocache among the trails. The Geocache on the Oak Loop is missing at this time.

Magnificent walk along the brook.

Thank you Eagle Scouts and Boy Scouts for marking these trails.

Hiking marks weren't accurate, very confusing to follow. Parking directions were poor, had to ask for directions. No kiosk to show trails. Wouldn't consider this trail to anyone.

Easy to moderate trail, loops around the lake then meanders up the ridge and back down along a small lovely creek. No views from the top, but the forest is full of mountain laurel, which I imagine is quite lovely when in bloom.

Great hiking trail. We followed the white blazes and it was a little over 4 Miles, it took us about 1 1/2 hours. It was a 90+ degree day and we took 2 small breaks.

Moderate to easy trail, close to home for me so its a favorite. Water is clean and fresh in that beautiful stream.

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.

Hiked the white trail at Locust Lake State Park. Nice hike moderate to hard trail. You climb about 600 ft of elevation using switchbacks. A lot of rocks and roots to navigate over. A fun trail. Trail is well marked with spray paint on trees.
