Beltzville State Park has several trails, with these three grouped together, a 5+ mile loop on the northeast side of the lake, located near Lehighton, Pennsylvania. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible year-round. Christman is a 2.5mi loop, relatively flat, with a .5 mile alternate route down a ravine. It may also be biked or skied. Falls and Cove Ridge trails are moderately more difficult, with some rocky terrain heading up past the waterfalls, and a steep, but short, climb beyond.
It was very fun and easy for my kids
Very easy hike. Pretty waterfall at the beginning however the rest of the hike is pretty much just walking in the woods. Not a lot of climbing or things to see. I'm glad our family (2 adults, 5yr old and 4yr old) did it but we'll probably look for something a little more challenging our next visit.
Nice trail! Loved the water falls
A really nice family hike.
Easy walking, nice falls
A nice trail for an easy hike. Very good for beginners.
Wonderful lake, and really nice trail. Had a run in with a bear and cub here last year... Great lake when it is open for business and not closed due to "issues" Plenty of Geocaches in the area too!
