In the past, I'd been many times. Earthen trail, except for the area that leads under the roadway, for easy on the body walking. Beautiful all year round.

Very easy walk and interesting history. The lake is currently at 1,127' and comes all the way up to the Van Winkle Mill site. Be sure to take a leisurely hike on the Sinking Stream Trail while you are there.
