Easy 5+ mile hike. Pond was frozen but the stream was flowing. Saw a nice 13 or 14 inch trout in the stream.

It was a good hike n pleasant weather ... but we should be careful we heard bear roaring n had to run ... otherwise perfectly marked with blue color! I highly recommend

Definitely an easy 5+ mile trail run. Lots of shade and plenty of bugs! Run two loops for a challenging 10+ miler! Would recommend running in the early morning when it's cool, but, to each his own..

Ran 7-14-2019 at 7am. Sun just came up. In first 5min I ran up on a deer (Doe) 5ft from me, just looked at each other lol.Trail was easy to see had a scenic view of the lake for apx half the other half was through the woods. Flies were biting me the entire run made it hard to enjoy the run. Any run is worth doing once. Good Luck.

Recovering from two knee injuries so this trail was a good place to start. Only did 2 miles but still enjoyable. Very pretty. Will definitely come back and work up to the full trail.

nice easy trail around the lake.

Great trail, it was beautiful throughout. A little taste of nature at best.

beautiful trail , well kept good for all levels

Excellent trail. A few muddy spots on the portion between the beach and the bridge but it was pouring rain on me from mile two on so that’s to be expected. Truly a pleasurable experience.

Easy hike. The blue loop is well-marked. Really muddy in spots but expected this time of year. The trail veers off into the woods for about two miles, maybe more. There’s no steep inclines or rocky climbing, so those looking for a challenge might want to try another trail. Took my 10-year-old Golden (who still thinks he’s a young pup) with me. Nice and peaceful walk, but nothing spectacular. Would do it again.

Good trail, too icy at this time, not much to see though

Gravel trail, well marked, very minor elevation changed. It took 2.5 hrs with a short bathroom and lunch break.

Very good trails

Not much to see, but good facilities at the beachfront area.

Nice path along the lake. But once you cross the road to go into the woods, away from the lake, then it is not so nice.

Took Tobyhanna blue trail to red trail out and back. If you like unmaintained, poorly marked trails with zero sites and dense foliage, this trail is for you. Blue trail was nice and maintained but again, no notable sights. Would not recommend anyone take the red trail and just go for the blue loop as seen on this recommended route.

Great trail for an easy trail run. Pretty, quiet, well-maintained. No major hills but just enough to challenge if you go fast.

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!

enjoyable hike

Due to limited time, my husband and started the hike to the right of the beach area -- hiked out for about 30 minutes at a leisurely pace; returned when we reached a road, back to the parking lot. Park was very quiet on a Tuesday in early sept. Trail well-maintained, family friendly, and picturesque.

My bf and I did (most of) the loop. It's a great place to jog, mostly shaded, nice scenery, not much elevation change. We didn't realize the trail went so far from the lake and turned around when we were about 1-2 miles away from the end, which caused us to do 7 miles instead of 5. Oops!
