Not maintained very well. Spent more time trying to avoid the massive amounts of water blocking the trail. Besides that great view and scenery. Would love to try again if certain parts were easier to walk through. Don't take kids for this reason!

We did it in the spring. Snow still on the ground makes for a little bit more difficult but much more fun.

We went to Bowman Lake to take a hike around the park today but we have camped here in the past several times. It is a very nice park with a nice beach area. When you camp here take time to follow the Berry Hill Tower Trail that you will find to the right of the beach area parking lot. It is about 2.8 miles long and takes you up to the Berry Hill Fire Tower where you can climb to the top of the tower, if the gate is not locked, and see for miles.

Easy, even surface hike through the Bowman Lake State Park, nothing too spectacular but it is pretty and nice for a short hike with kids. Makes up part of the Finger Lake trails which passes by a small beach.
