Decent walk around the lake. Mostly on sidewalk along a busy street. Plenty of parking available.

Flat for whole trail. Easy walking. The lake is nice. Most of the trail is on a Major street so there is constant traffic along side where you are walking.

My favorite for a sunset walk. Gets busy so plan for that ☺️☺️

The Lake Quannapowitt Trail is a very pretty walk regardless of the time of year or day. At least half of the trail is right on the water. I enjoyed seeing different views of the lake and I would walk the trail again or run it.

Walked around the lake several times. Nice walk. Walk around in a clockwise direction in the afternoon to avoid sun in your face. Go the other way during sunset for a lovely sunset walk.

You can't get lost on this walk/jog in the town I where I went to high school. Just walk around Lake Quannapowitt. The "busy" aspect comes from the popularity of this route for locals getting their daily exercise. The "Moderate" assumes you join the joggers. Otherwise it's fairly easy. The lake is in predominantly residential surroundings, with a few commercial properties.
