There’s a loop that goes around the whole park but you’ll be walking on the road through the park, still surrounded by trees and offers beautiful views of the lake. There are also trails through the woods that are more true to hiking, also offering great views of the lake. Some of those trials still cut through the road briefly depending on the trial you take, but are mostly through the woods. Wonderful options for all seasons however less parking is available in the off-season. The sunset hiking trials and whole park in general offers great views around sunset. The foliage in autumn is also worth a visit. You can also rent a picnic area for a couple dollars and hang out, if you want to make a day out of it. Easy trials, kid and dog friendly. The road trails get pretty busy in nice weather but the dirt paths are less populated.

Great mountain biking. There are trails shared between hikers and mt bikers, so look out for one another. There are narrow trails that are for mountains only. I dont know about other bikers but Im flying and would never have time to stop if a hiker. sooo please please please, if you are hiking stay off the mountain bike trails so no one gets hurt. Also mountain bikers, keep a look out for dear. Had a close call not too long ago.

We definitely got lost as this trail isn’t marked great— many side trails with no markers or blazes to tell where to go. We honestly made our own trail when we could hear the highway and walked from the on ramp back our car. Otherwise it’s a great park with a lot of trails to offer— just navigate better than we did!

Today we parked just over the bridge on Manchester Print Works Road off of Great Rd and walked on the paved road around Oley Pond which was a good choice as the trails looked pretty muddy. The pond loop was about 3.5 miles. Very pleasant! We look forward to hiking the trails with appropriate footwear or closer to spring.

So we expected to be in the woods. We asked where to walk and she said stay on the road and that completes Pawson Loop. Instead of parking as soon as we got there we should have driven 3/4 of 2.5 mile walk to park where the nature trails are. The lady also should have told us this. Great Experience either way & now we know where to drive to for next time. Also, no "deep end" swimming! Fishing & picnic sites for lunch/dinner(don't forget to grab a permit for the picnic sites!) :)

Lots of hills and rocks which makes for a great work out! Many winding trails to zig zag. I definitely want to check this place out several more times because I know heres much more to see.

Beautiful place to walk....all kinds of wildlife and birds. The main loop (Les Pawson Loop) is 2.5 mills though, not 3.4.

Very nice. Woods, roadways and a nice lake. Parking at the entrance could be better

I both hiked the trails and walked the 2.5-mile roadway -- just to get some extra steps in, since hiking is more my interest. The walking "path" is actually a roadway -- traffic is slow enough, but it's still something to contend with. But the wooded hiking trails are well worth the trip! At times, the trails meander around Olney Pond and provide some fairly challenging footpaths. . . but the distances are not terribly long. A great place for a 90-minute jaunt, perhaps, but don't plan to spend the better part of a day there.

one of the best mountain biking destinations in southern new england. anything from easy trails to serious downhill. unmarked trails make it difficult for newcomers though, and there are a LOT of intersecting trails.

Easy, good for the whole family. Liked the diversity of scenery along the trail. Lake was beautiful.
