Park in parking area on Ludingtonville Road. There is a kiosk there with trail maps. Take the blue trail up to and around the lake or explore the many side trails.

Check the trail status report on the board in the parking lot before hiking the loop.

Trees down everywhere with poison ivy. I guess it would have been a great hike if he trees were cleaned up after the storm

Hiked the teal trail from the parking area on Ludingtonville Rd. Lots of uphill at first but not overly taxing. Parts of the trail are stone steps in the area leading up to Wonder Lake. I considered going up to Bald Hill on the way to see if there was a view but decided against it. Once you get closer to the lake, the teal trail winds down gently toward the lake, then continues to follow the lake shore line until you are about half way around. Some very nice peaceful lake views. Once the teal trail separates from the lake it’s more woodland hiking, with lots of nice ups and downs and some stream crossings, until you come to the pond. There’s a bridge over the spillway at the far end of the pond, then the teal trail starts to climb again, until it meets up with the blue trail, which rises and then falls, taking you back where you started. No really spectacular views but a very peaceful hike. Once you get over by the lake you can no longer hear the noises from I-84.

Great hike. Uphill from the start, I would have given it 5 stars, but it was an un groomed tic haven for about a mile. Easy to navigate and a beautiful lake. This trail gives you two points to exit, in case you want to cut it short.

This hike was moderately easy! It was a lot of fun and I got to hike all around the lake. Very beautiful.

I started my hike from the west parking area and made my way around the south end of the lake first. The beginning of the trail is a bit narrow, but once it opens up it is great. There are a lot of ups and down, but a beginner hiker can tackle the trail with ease. Parts of the trail are rocky or even made out stone so mind your footing, other than that it's quite easy, peaceful, and beautiful. There are quite a view spots throughout the trail that have picture perfect views of the entire lake. Definitely a great hike.

Great hike! Lots of land changes along the way with many unique attributes. You have to hike in a mile or so before you start to really enjoy this park and see why its so special. Lots of waterfront, ledges, up and down trails and terrain. The signs of the cushmann family seen around the park make it all the more interesting place. See pictures if I can get them to upload.
