The smell of the air and the sound of silence on this stroll were so amazing... plus the glassiness of the water made for amazing pictures of the trees. This is definitely worth the visit!

Nice, quiet trail. I only saw one other person the entire time. Beautiful viewpoint as you are coming down the trail.

Rode the trail from where it crosses Pine St. in West Swanzy north to Keen, just about 6 miles each way.

The trail surface is very good; crushed gravel. The only inconvenience is the occasional chipmunk hole. For some reason they are digging holes in the middle of the trail :-).

The scenery is nice, but nothing special for the region. There are a few views of the Ashuelot River on bridge crossings.

There is a new bridge for the trail that takes you over Rt. 101/12, so there is no longer difficulty with that crossing as noted in an earlier post.

All in all an enjoyable ride.

Great hike with beautiful views of the lake. We live in NJ and always do this hike.

This place is just great. Lots of mushrooms from August and on. Great for identifying dragonflies, caterpillars, and great spot to find painted turtles. On sunny weekends in the summer its the place to be. There is also an area for swimming. I recommend going in the morning before it gets more heavily trafficked.
