I spent a few hours just walking around the trails and there are some beautiful views of the lake. Plenty of activities at the park for families to do as well. I parked by the beach (there was an entrance fee) and started on the eastern most corner of the lake. Within the first mile you can reach a spot with an amazing view.

Some good hiking but can be a bit humdrum & flat. Nice picnicking areas. Nice waterviews.

HIked the white trail around Canopus Lake. Nice trail not terribly hard but also not flat and boring. There is a nice spot at the top to each lunch at or you can go down by the beach. It rained pretty hard most of the time which made it interesting.

Only about 75 minutes outside of NYC
