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.

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.

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!
