Good trail to hike! Well maintained with gorgeous views at the top. There is a decent amount of people and horse traffic on this trail though.

Nice wooded walk to a lake with a view of the manor and then back. Great place to watch birds, enjoyed watching 3 yellow bellied sap suckers do their thing. Took about 2 hours round trip at a leisurely pace. Direct access to lake from other entry points via another trailhead vs hiking all the way from the manor.

Very easy- it's a flat walk on a gravel path that leads to a paved circle around a lake

Nice easy enjoyable trail. Plenty of blooming rhododendrons in mid-July. Great views at the top of the trail at the Cone Manor.

The trail is well-kept and a great hike. My wife and I stumbled across it while completing The Maze and Apple Barn Trails at Bass Lake. Seeing Cone Manor is well worth the winding path which gradually climbs with each turn. You can drive to the manor, but the hike makes it all the more worthwhile.

love Cone Manor property. Beautiful horse trails and walking from the house to the lake then to the orchard.
