Cross-country skiingGreat!Snow

Skied then snowshoes around the lower lake (actually up the left side to bridge and back then up the right side following the campground unplowed road). About 2.5 feet of snow but awesome paths broken out perfect for both activities. Planned to do the overlook trail but it’s still virgin. Just looking at that pile of snow which is the overlook trail is exhausting.

Beautiful, serene lake views from the beach. The fall foliage is lovely, but the leaves on the ground are slippery. Good for a trail run, but the downhills are a little slippery with wet leaves.

Great dog-friendly hike with dog swimming options! The trail is a bit difficult to follow (unclear markings and the map isn’t super helpful) and parts of it are on the road which isn’t as nice, but it’s a nice walk altogether. Many people not wearing masks so I recommend arriving early if you’re practicing safety and social distancing. The park was closed due to capacity at 11:30am.

The lake itself is beautiful. I expected a little more nature and not as much pavement. First part was mostly pavement then eventually found a trail. A lot of people out so be aware of social distancing. We went on this trail to check out the overlook but could not find it. It was a pretty big disappointment because we walked around for awhile looking for it. Regardless of not finding the overlook we got to see a cool damn, pretty birds, and cute turtles sunbathing on some logs.

Beautiful, easy hike. Overlook isn’t really that impressive, honestly didn’t even know we were at the overlook ha-ha! Little muddy in spots, but that’s to be expected!

Horse manure everywhere! Gross!! Why aren’t horse owners responsible for cleaning up like dogs?

I would say more moderate than easy! Just did a hard trail up monadnock 8 mile loop and no way this is easy in comparison. Beautiful views on a great day and I would say a semi challenging hike. Would do again but I can’t see gram and gramps coming up here.
