Beautiful walk around a mountain lake, lots of obvious beaver activity. The Price Lake Loop Trail circles a beautiful mountain lake. This is a good hike for anyone due to the short distance and flat terrain. Some areas of the trail may be muddy after winter snows or spring rains. From the Price Lake Overlook, go to the left over the bridge. Follow the trail into the woods. As you walk around the lake you'll notice a lot of beaver sign on the surrounding trees. The muddy areas on the trail near the back of the lake are also a result of the beavers work. Continue following this easy, flat trail around the lake. You'll walk through a nice campground area as you return back to the parking area.

Easy trail. Beautiful spots of the lake from around the trail. Heavy traffic. Did it with 4 (dad, mom, 10yr boy, 8yr girl).

Quiet hike/walk around the shore of Price Like. It’s nothing strenuous and a relaxing way to end the day. There were a few muddy spots on 3/9/20 but they were relatively small.

Nice, easy hike. Muddy in some spots, as you should probably expect being next to a lake.

A peaceful stroll around the lake. The rhododendron tunnels are sweet. I would rate it a 5 if this was AllWalks.com.

This is a very easy trail around the lake. Even our young children walked the whole way. We loved the rhododendron “tunnels” There was one spot we had to jump across the creek and it was a bit slippery.

This was a nice walk. I went on a rainy October day. It cuts through a campground so prepare to see others.

This trail is soooo pretty! Tucked inside the rhododendrons like a hidden trail, the light and the water make it a perfect scene for gathering your thoughts. Super easy, but lots of roots from the rhododendrons keep you on your toes.

Felt way longer than 2.2 miles. Very pretty but muddy in areas. Great views of the lake.

Really nice trail around the Price Lake. Peaceful, a couple areas were a little damp to wet (did not cause a problem). Great area to come to as well to camp or rent a canoe on the lake.

Muddy in places, but overall, well-marked, easy trail with a few challenges for my 84 year old dad. A few benches for a little rest and water break. Mostly shady, but some nice views of the lake too.

A little more than easy. Only paved near campground. There were spots almost impassible after a rain.
