Light hike but not too easy as the terrain can get uneven with roots, rocks and stream crossings. Nice views of the lake and swamp. There was plenty of water in the streams when we went so we found a spot to take a break and enjoy the waterfalls.

Beautiful trail near a lake.

Just be mindful that it is a relatively complex trail system. It is quite easy to lose the trail (or join a different one) if you are running fast.

The map in this app was really helpful.

Great loop trail. We did white w/red and then turquoise. Some cool rock formations/caves. Pretty views of the swamp & two lakes. We hiked with our dog & 3 kids, ages 13, 10 & 3. The youngest spent about half the time in a backpack carrier & walked the rest.

Lovely walk and easy enough for small kids but does take a few hours.

I added the little climb to Hogencamp Mountain and found a gorgeous view. To get there, follow the RD from Times Square (red circle with a white outline) and backtrack once you're done.
