Agreed with previous. You’re walking on a sidewalk around a lake. It’s pretty but views on the north side are obstructed due to homes.

Nice walk while staying in Lake Placid. The Mirror Lake area we thought was more picturesque. The Loop walk is nice and we even rented some paddle boats to get out on the lake.

Side walk around the Mirror Lake nice walk, dog friendly. Also went to Cobble Hill, I had to stay with the dogs right before the top.. due to a rope climb. He went up for pictures.

Very pretty walk! If you go up the road to the Crowne Plaza the view is so amazing, you can see so many of the mountain peaks. There’s a bunch of cool stores and restaurants along the walk as well.

Nice short walk around lake. More of a walk than a hike as it is a sidewalk the whole way around and residential at parts. Pretty scenery.

Every visit to Lake Placid I will walk this every morning. Nice to just enjoy the area and see the village from a different side other than on Main St.

This is a lovely walk around the lake but the view is on 3/4 of the walk. The rest is residential homes and cabins.

A nice little walk around the lake. Easy, even a non-hiker can do.

It's okay, it's not entirely lake front. And that kills the mood.

Nice stroll around the lake and surrounding neighborhood. Stayed in a hotel in the center of town so I could just walk out the door and begin this trip. Combined this with a hike up Cobble Hill which made for a lovely early afternoon

All sidewalk, very flat you will see joggers, dog walkers, many other walkers. It goes right through the village so window-shop while you walk. Many lake views and some Mountain View’s as well.

Nice walk to familiarize yourself with the quaint town of Lake Placid. I was a bit disappointed though as I thought it would be more along the shores of Mirror Lake. Only a few open spots to take it in, but they were nice views, the rest is just a residential walk.

I’ve walked this maybe 50 times. It’s flat, sidewalk and takes you right through the village.

It’s a level sidewalk. Dog poop bags and trash barrels along the way in case you forgot your dog’s usual bags. Nice views of the lake. Lots of traffic. There is a area separate from the public beach along the southern tip of Mirror Lake where your dog can go into the water. Quiet in the early AM. Very heavily trafficked on the weekends.
