Cascades is the best!! The part past the lake has parking down a little hill and dogs can be off leash to play starting 100ft from the dirt lot. If you want a longer hike though start at the parking mentioned.

We were discouraged because nothing was marked. I parked the first place I saw other cars but that is not the head of the trail. We followed a smaller trail at one point and ended up on the Merritt Parkway. If trail colors or names were marked we would've enjoyed ourselves more.

I cannot call this trail as moderate, it is very easy. But, watching all beauties was fascinating.

Lots of paths, well cleared, nice views. LOTS of dogs. We walked/hiked for about 90 minutes and every person we saw had one if not two dogs. Almost all were off leash (which is allowed). Just too many dogs for it to be relaxing. If you have a dog you will really enjoy this location.

Awesome. This place was my back yard as a kid. Back then there was way less foot traffic but it's still my favorite place to go. Tons of memories here.

Trails not very well marked, and have a lot of tree roots.

This is our dogs' favorite place on earth. Being Australian breed working dogs stuck in the city - they just have a blast with their freedom here. The love playing in the water and we all enjoy the nice stroll around the lake, nothing too strenuous. In the cooler months we also include a trip to nearby Jennings beach.

Gorgeous lake and east trail.

Dogs are allowed off leash except for 100 feet of any parking area. This information should be corrected.

This is a heavily trafficked trail on the weekends. It's an easy hiking trail that's also good for running. Great access to stocked trout and year round catch and release. LOTS of dogs off leash. I've never had a problem with a dog or its owner.

Great hike for people getting started. Lots of dogs and people so avoid if you're looking to be on your own. Great for family hikes or just groups looking to get outside. A few different paths for different skill levels. Really a great place.

It's a very popular spot, so I wouldn't head there expecting solitude or a wilderness experience, but it's a nice place for a run or stroll. The cascades are small but nice. The stream gets stocked with trout in the spring. Great for dog walkers.

My kids and I enjoyed a 2.33 mile hike around lake mohegan. Some of the hike was an uphill challenge for my young kids but mostly it was a wide flat path, especially toward the cascades. The trails near the cascades were packed but on the other side if the lake was pretty deserted. Every turn we made there was another beautiful view. Lake Mohegan is a great trail to enjoy with your kids.

I grew up near here so this did not offer anything spectacular. Great little forest area to explore with kids with little streams and rapids
