A gem! Easy, relaxing path with great access to the lake. Parking was limited. It was virtually empty when we went on a fall afternoon, but I imagine it might be busy in the summer.

Nice-pretty level walk for most of it and well marked. Lovely lake views. Walking stick came in handy for incline on the way back.

Easy, well maintained 40 minute hike to nice swimming area/mini beach. We spent many hours swimming and enjoying the view of lake and mountains. Picturesque. 40 minute remainder of loop back. Super !

Parking is limited so get there in time. Obey the parking restrictions as there are houses that share the way. Stay off of private property. Good trail to bring you and your pup to some water. At the fork if you go right you will quickly come to 5 or so different spots to go into the water. We picked one with limited people and had lunch there. If you do the loop there is a massive tree down. Some of our party was able to squeeze under while others bushwhacked around.

So if you stay on the trail and don’t “trace” all the fingers you will encounter an area where a tree has blown over you will have to go through some thick woods to get around it. We wanted to trace the fingers but we couldn’t find the trails to do that they are so overgrown and not maintained which was a bummer. However this is a beautiful hike with plenary of areas you could swim at any age (we had our 9 month old with us)both rocky and sandy bottoms. Pack food and have a family picnic while taking in one of the many beautiful vistas you’ll see along the hike :) make sure you do pack bug spray and check for ticks after especially if you have to trek around the downed tree.

Great hike and much of it is on the lake so bring your bathing suit. We didn't have any problems with mud.

Absolutely beautiful trail! First to go through a really old pinewoods it’s super old, tall Pines. Then it goes out onto a peninsula in Squam Lake. No ice or snow which was great for this time of year April 1. Lots of roots and rocks but it wasn’t too bad. One of the nicest hikes I’ve had in the area. There was some nice places that were potential swim spots out on the peninsula! Great trail! Took me about two hours and 20 minutes to walk the whole thing, but I wasn’t hurrying.

Calm, serene, peaceful hike. Only downside is you can’t park at the trailhead.
