Lake Mohegan and its surrounding open space comprise a total of 170.4 acres off Morehouse Highway. The Conservation Commission administers the open space property with its many hiking trails but the popular swimming area is managed by the Parks and Recreation Commission. Great loop trail. Watch out for dogs off the leash! Bridge over the Mill river includes benches to rest while listening to the river below. Certain areas require dogs be leashed.

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