Hey folks This is not the trail as it is marked today. The new trail name is the Warren Trail and it is painted orange. Trail head is near Ranger shack on WEST side of Lake George Regional Park. Trail comes out near the beach and picnic area. I have recorded Warren Trail. other trails to follow soon.

This rates as easy for me because of the distance and the one brief section of incline. So compared to the moderately graded Mt. Blue, which peaks over 3000 feet, this is easy. The podoc part of the trail is not marked well. my dog and I spent an hour and ten minutes on this 2.5 mile loop. It is barely used but there is mostly visible trailed marked by natural rocks, leaf litter and pine needle paths. The bugs came out around 10:30 and they were vicious until I put on my deterrent. We trekked under the trees in a beautiful amd undisturbed forest. So undisturbed that I lost count after the 30th time that I walked into spider silk. They are working to rename and combine the trail circuit loop into one trail called the Warren Trail. This info will be helpful to people who are not familiar with the park. *Please update* It costs $6 per adult. When we were done my dog and I called off at the doggy beach just on the East side of the lake. I am a local and plan to hike this frequently!

This is a great hike; my dog and I spent just over an hour to hike, even after getting turned around twice. The sharp incline on podoc trail isn't marked well. Also, the bugs came out at 10:30, so bring a good repellent. When near the lake edge I could here people at the local beaches, but once I trekked into the middle of the trail it was beautifully silent. I did walk through a lot of spider webs because the trail is barely used. And adults must pay $6 to access the park. After our hike I took my dog to the doggy beach just on the east side of lake to cool down. It was beautiful and no one else was around. This trail circuit is currently being updated and renamed the Warren Trail. Updating the info on here would be useful to those who do not know the area. I am a local and plan to hike here on a regular basis!

First to Review

Despite being in need of maintenance, it's a nice trail with views of the lake and some climbing involved. Arguably the most well rounded trail in the Sebasticook Valley. Folks should know about it and use it. Has bathrooms
