This trail was a fun 3.5 hour hike. It combines what the parks brochure calls the London lake trail (a 2 mile moderate) into the full 8 mile Park Summit Trail listed as “strenuous.”

At times it could be decently steep, with loose terrain in places. We went in May and did not experience any ticks, biting bugs etc. The trail itself was well groomed and the park was easy to navigate. The view from the top was worth the hike. Upon decent through the multiple high-altitude Meadows we came across many deer, a small non-poisonous snake and other wildlife.
