Fairly easy hike around the lake. Very pretty. Nice rocks for a picnic along the peninsula trail. Also beach and tables for picnicking.

I loved this hike. The woods were so beautiful, mountain laurel and hemlocks everywhere, boulders added to the beauty. I wish it was longer but will absolutely be back in all the seasons!

Great trail. Some parts of the trail were very muddy, I don’t recommend this trail to people who are out of shape, be careful when not looking where your stepping, there are lost of rocks and roots.

A lovely walk around the pond. Easy and flat with so many beautiful views of the water. Loved hiking to the peninsula as well.

I did the loop around the pond. It’s mostly flat and the trail is pretty well marked and not difficult to follow. I did find it a touch confusing on the east side near the beach. There are a number of roots in places and I would guess it would be pretty muddy if it was wetter than it is right now. I started on the west side and then went around to the east. I found the west side to be much more interesting. There are other trails that lead off of that which look like they would be moderately challenging and fun to do, but I did not have time this morning. I will have to save those for another time. Quite enjoyable. I encountered about a half dozen people. I’m thinking this is a pretty popular place at peak hours.

The waterfall wasn’t flowing but it was a nice family hike. Not very buggy. Not much up and down. Very quiet and not busy. Also lots of nice areas to picnic if you wanted to.
