Loved the quiet, peaceful surrounds of nature. Saw wildlife and enjoyed the trail. Kids loved it too.

You need permission to hike here, which the app failed to explain. Fortunately my family member had permission.

It was amazing. Traveling through the portion of the lake that was dried up was like walking through another world. You enter in a little entrance just past a bridge and you immediately go beneath the bridge which has a waterfall. Getting to the lake is up to you. Tip: don't use trail maps just adventure and explore, it's amazing

Very easy trail to hike that circles Lake Hammonasset. Virtually no steep inclines and there is a clear tire track path the whole way. I started at the gated entrance on Route 80 on the Madison/Killingworth line and continued on the White Trail. I decided to detour and explore the lake view 'orange trail' which didn't afford many lake views. The orange trail dumped me back on the white trail and I continued on until I reached a clearing with the water company building. Nice little paved section with a boat launch to take a break and enjoy the lake view. I doubled back to Route 80 and it took me about two hours total. Follow me on Twitter @ctyogahikes
