The gently rolling hills, lush forests and sparkling waters disguise a land that has endured the effects of continental glaciers and massive mineral extraction. Each year over one million people visit the 16,725-acre park, yet never realize that many people helped restore the park from prior coal mining and oil and gas drilling practices. Today, the park is an outstanding example of environmental engineering achievement.

Pretty views. Be prepared to trek through several swampy patches on trail

I love kayaking out at Moraine. So many spots you can dock and so many places you can get out to explore. Love it!

We love hiking this trail!!

The paved bike trail within Moraine State Park is 7 miles long (not a loop). It starts at the Bike Rental on North Shore Drive near the park entrance from West Park Road. The paved trail winds along, with some hills, grades, and curves, and many views of the lake. About halfway it passes through Lakeview Beach area, with a disc golf course, playground, and a swimming area (open Memorial Day to Labor Day, swim at your own risk), food concession, and picnic areas. The bike trail ends near Davis Hollow.

Fun path to hike with friends. Not very challenging for longer distance hikers, but fun trip to Moraine.
