Easy winter stroll around the lake. Pretty though. Basically flat. Snow made it a little tough to find the start of the trail for our first visit. But once you get away from beach area the path is easy to follow. We were hoping to use our snowshoes but there wasn’t really enough snow. We will definitely be back when it snows more. Safe easy place to learn to snowshoe.
About 3/4 of the way around the lake we choose to take the Cathedral Ledge trail to add to the adventure (add 2 miles and some elevation gain for sure. I recommend that if you are a hiker.) Need crampons in the winter if snow and ice is present. . Actually, even around the lake it helps to have good boots with traction or some slip on cleats if there is snow/Ice.
Parked outside the park, as it is closed in the winter. Signs say “ no parking” ... but there were other cars and we didn’t get a ticket or towed. At least this time. :)
Note for next Spring, Summer, Fall - this would be a great running trail. About a mile long so just add the laps you want!

A beautiful, simple trail around Echo lake. it's beautiful for leaf peeping in the Fall. Stunning views of Cathedral's Ledge.

Had a hard time finding this trail we could not see anything marking the trail! Then unfortunately it started to rain! Maybe better luck next time! We were leery to go into the park area because it said absolutely no dogs! :(

Easy walk around a nice lake that starts and ends in a nice beach area suitable for a swim

Had a nice walk around the lake, but a bit too many mosquitoes. Not too much to look at. Good place for families to picnic
