RunningGreat!IcySnow

Conditions are packed snow with buts of ice in some places. But trail ran with only minor slipping definitely no problem for hiking. Beautiful.

HikingIcySnow

Hiked a week after the big snow storm, by which point the snow had melted or been tamped down to just a few inches. Unfortunately, that made for a slick walking surface. Even with hiking poles, some spots were slippery. At least there was not much elevation. Even on a 20-something day, it was very busy. We must have passed 20 or more people, mostly with their dogs. Several people had ice cleats or snow shoes. The scenery was nice in winter, and I think it must be great in summer. Trail was well-marked and it was easy to follow. Hiking-only trails were clearly designated, as were the motorized trails.

HikingGreat!

With 3 trail heads you can adjust your trip, especially if you take 2 vehicles. This trail also connects to the Queensbury School District's trail system. If you like to paddle use the middle trail head for the shortest walk down to Rush Pond. There is a trail leading down to the water by "Indian Point" (see screen shot of map I uploaded to the Photos). There are additional unmarked, but well worn trails down to the water and such.
