Great family hike. Great first time hike, since it is more of a walk. Great beach and picnic area and playground for kids. Great one to get grandma and grandpa and the kiddies out in nature.

Hiked to the overview with my son yesterday it was a good hike .
Enjoyed the snowman. Trying to get in shape to go up Marcy this summer this hike seemed to be a good start. Enjoyed it.

This is a state park with an entrance fee. FYI.

Fairly easy hike to the overlook until the last bit. The ascent wasn't bad but the rocks were pretty icy. Still, the clear day and the view were worth it!

Great climb to the overlook. Very rocky though.
Paddle boarded around the lake....beautiful extremely clear water.

Great park with tons of great trails. Trails are generally well marked... only quibble is sometimes they are not well marked exactly where they need to be.

Addendum to Debra B's comment above: Maps are available at the ranger house right adjacent to the main toll booth entrance.

Really beautiful lake with a great swimming beach. There looks to be some great hiking trails but there are no maps. since we weren't familiar with the park we were hesitant about wandering too far. looks good for camping, we were only there for a little while.
