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.

I've loved this trail since I was a kid! it's definitely been updated with some nice Bridges and stair cases where needed most. some of the trail gets pretty muddy and marshy, but I think it adds to the charm of a lake trail with beautiful views! Took about an hour to finish because I had to stop to take pictures so often!

Took about an hour. Easy hike, but watch out for some tree roots. Great views of the lake, grandfather, and beautiful flowers. Be ready for mud!
