The Glad Lake hiking trail is a maintained trail that loops around two waterbodies, over creeks and rolling terrain which borders shoreline of Glad Lake. The one unnamed lake you circle, connects Glad Lake and Wellman Lake by a small stream littered with a series of beaver dams. The second waterbody you pass by is a landlocked lake known as Caverly Lake. There are two options, including the short loop of 3 km hike or an additional 1.5 km (one way) to the Copernicus Hill Tower. There are a few rest areas along the 3 km of trail, with some water crossings areas which are a great place to take a break as well as a picnic table at the top of the lookout. The full hike to Copernicus Hill and back is 6.0 km.
