Nice hike. There are some rocks & roots but overall it is an easy hike through the woods right along the lake’s edge. The biggest section of undeveloped forest on the lake. There are some points where you can go down to the lake for a good view of the water but this trail is mostly forested. There were two or three trees down across the trail but they were easily stepped over. We had a perfect summer day, complete sun with temps in the high 70s. I would recommend this trail to anyone.

Great hike...on a great fall day, went down to the lake loop..a cool manmade firepit and benches..actually saw and videoed a river otter! Awesome experience

I liked the lake view, but not secluded enough for my taste. Could hear/see traffic and people on boats. I prefer something a bit more quiet. Would do again given the close proximity to where I live. ☺

This was a decent loop hike. Go counter clockwise so you do the uphill portion first. Nice boulder to sit on and enjoy the lake view from the shoreline.

Easy walk! Gets very wet, wear water proof shoes. LOVE the views of Lake Wallenpaupack

This trail is very easy, with a small incline depending on which end of the loop you enter from. The lake is really the only view, great for exercise. The path was poorly marked, even with the all trails map we walked a mile out of our way looking for markings. Perfect for ticks so bring your bug spray!

We just did on a 50 degree February day w a few inches of damp snow on the ground and a beautiful blue ground. Parking lot was full but only saw 4 sets of ppl on the hike. Trail was easy w one steep part and lively view of lake for most of it. Snow made it a foot work out.

Easy trail to follow. Their is only one area uphill that is moderate. Beautiful scenery off trail a bit by the lake. Didn't see any animals. Their was a giant stone wall in the middle of the hike that was pretty cool.

Great hike, went with my wife and 9 year old. Logged a total of 3 miles. Easier to start on the North side of the parking lot; it's a steep climb to start this way, so to finish 3 miles with this ascent would've been a different hike.

Steep in spots. Do start as recommended counterclockwise .... When you get to the end of the trail you'll be glad you did

Great trail to hike with a dog. You can access the lake about halfway through so I always let my pup swim and she is dry by the time we get back to the car. This is a pretty easy hike but it still feels like a hike rather than just an easy walk through the woods. This usually tales me about an hour.

I did this trail a few times. The best time to go is later in the summer when the water is low. I went off trail and walked the rocky shoreline .

The trailhead is in Lakeville, the other side of the lake from where the map shows .

Excellent trail, well marked and good fun hiking around the fabulous Lake Wallenpaupack. There are some steep climbs so wouldn't recommend to anyone with bad knees. This a regular hike we do on Saturdays in the winters as there is no hunting permitted and it's a great quick workout.
