Tobyhanna State Park is in scenic Monroe and Wayne counties in northeastern Pennsylvania. The 5,440-acre park includes the 170-acre Tobyhanna Lake. Tobyhanna is derived from an American Indian word meaning "a stream whose banks are fringed with alder." Gouldsboro State Park is nearby.

My family and I did the lake trail loop. It was nice enough. For the most part it is a flat gravel path around the lake that diverges from the lake side and goes in to the woods for about 2 miles. We had good weather, and the trail was easy enough that my 3 year old daughter could handle it.

Unfortunately if you're hoping for some nice sights to see, this isn't the best place for it. Along the lake the scenery is very pleasant, but once you're away from the lake, it is a fairly bland trail without much interesting geography.

Good trail. Basically a six foot wide gravel path around the lake. Mostly shady so it stays cool.

Perfect spot with little ones. Great trails for running as well!

Easy hike. Go early as a park and ride it fills up quickly - Did the hike with my dad whose 71 and it was perfect. Mostly in the shade

Nice easy trail. Child and dog friendly. Shady and well-maintained.

I wanted something 5 miles or so with not much in the way of elevation changes so this was perfect. I took my fishing rod along and stopped at few spots to fish. Hooked big bass but the line broke! I release everything anyway!
