Beautiful nature hike but the trail is poorly marked...found ourselves off the trail a few times. The trail is only a loop if you want to cross a water way and get wet...if not you can take the access road back to main road and walk back to parking area.

The smell of the air and the sound of silence on this stroll were so amazing... plus the glassiness of the water made for amazing pictures of the trees. This is definitely worth the visit!

Great hike with beautiful views of the lake. We live in NJ and always do this hike.

This place is just great. Lots of mushrooms from August and on. Great for identifying dragonflies, caterpillars, and great spot to find painted turtles. On sunny weekends in the summer its the place to be. There is also an area for swimming. I recommend going in the morning before it gets more heavily trafficked.

I was very disappointed in the amount of trash on the trail and just off of.

Nice loop- flat but lots of uneven terrain- good tree cover in the heat, pretty pond- some bikers coming through- walked with kids 9-12, lots of fun little spots to stop and explore

Really beautiful walk! Sometimes the trail isn't marked too well and you have to forge your own path. The mud is also bad if it's just rained. But overall, great hike for a nice day :)

Very icy out on the trails and at least one of the water crossings was difficult because of ice on the rocks. I somehow managed to get myself a little lost and wasn't sure if I was suppose to cross the dam so just came out the old road and walked back to the parking area. Definitely thinking I'll be back for trail running when there's no ice!

Great easy little loop trail around a beautiful pond. Lots of songbirds and frogs! Note that part of the trail has been re-routed to avoid worsening erosion in one area. It can get a little confusing if you aren't paying attention to the blazes. Dogs are allowed on this trail. No swimming allowed in the pond.

I have traveled this route a number of times over 50 years. Despite how busy the road is in any drivable season, it is a classic for scenery of mountains, forest, river, etc. It is spectacular in the fall, when it is incredibly busy. Somehow, word about New England foliage leaked out. In a good year, it is better than you've heard. In a bad year, it still beats almost anyplace else.

Growing up in New England, I have visited this region many times. It is beautiful any time, and spectacular in the fall. Lots to see, regardless of your interests, and lots of side hikes.
