Today was beautiful! Went at 8 am on a Sunday, parking was okay, full but we found a spot in the lot. When we left at 1pm the police were ticketing parked cars up and down the street that were over the white lines.

The hike was beautiful!! It was a steep challenging hike but fabulously worth it. Even went swimming in Lake Lackawaxen, which was awesome. the hike could have been done faster but we had sone people not used to hiking and took many breaks and a big break to take a swim.

Also, there were tonz of dogs on this hike.

TAKE BUG SPRAY. MOSQUITOS ARE HORRIBLE. We borrowed some from someone on our way.

This hike down to Bloods Lake used to be one of our absolute favorites, especially to take the dogs swimming. It was serene and beautiful and lightly trafficked. But now the place has become completely overrun with partying teenagers. If you’re looking for loud music, kids screaming on rope swings, an incessant flow of hikers in flip flops and swimsuits and no peace and quiet this is your place! Went there last weekend to show some visiting friends the trail and couldn’t even find a place to park at the top. You know it’s gotten bad when the forest district put Porta potty‘s at the head of the trail. Maybe need to continue on to Lakawaxen and other lakes to get away from all the kids. But there are so many other better places to go

This seemed like it would be a great hike, but there were so many mosquitos you could never stop to rest for fear of being eaten alive! They found every place I neglected to spray with bug spray. We went around 6:00 in the evening so maybe it was just the time of day. It would have been a great hike if not for the bugs.

BEWARE OF MOSQUITOES! This trail is beautiful. Very easy walk to get to a stunning lake. The last part is down hill and a little steep so wear good shoes and watch your ankles. Also be sure to bring bug spray or you WILL be eaten alive (maybe that’s why it’s called bloods lake

Did this hike yesterday and had a blast! Beautiful views. If you do the full loop, the first part is pretty steep, but the view from the top is worth it! Will definitely do this hike again!
