Trail was very muddy. Out and back section was very overgrown in places. Nice, quiet trail.

This trail is not well marked and is extremely rocky. I would not recommend it for hiking with dogs. The occasional openings in the trees offer beautiful views of the lake but it’s difficult to enjoy with having to watch every rocky step!

This trail was a joke- very easy and no view. Very buggy right now too. Do not hike if you enjoy hiking

Trails are poorly marked. By poorly marked I mean at times no markers to be found. Trail head signs are marked incorrectly and do not have a mark indicating your location. Park maps are useless and asking staff is not helpful. Was given wrong information twice. If looking to do the Fire Tower best bet to just Google directions.

The map that was posted in parking was not clear and we found ourselves going around in circles. Never got close to the pond other than at the canoe dock. Otherwise, what we hiked was nice.

The trail was nice to take the dog for a walk through but not very well marked.

Rocky flat, wet trail.

Bit more rigorous than I expected for a normal woodsy hike, but certainly worth it if you go to the fire tower.

A moderate trail involving with a rocky and tree root covered path. Had to do a few off trail bits to get around water and mucky bits that will likely be easier to pass when the spring rains dry out a bit. I expected nice water views as it’s a perimeter trial, but you are in the woods quite a bit. Lots of ducks and birds to be seen and heard. Would not recommend for small children as there are many places for falls and tumbles on the rocky bits throughout the trail.

Windy and rocky. Not enough snow to be fun yet and the wind made the top layer crunchy so it’s hard to walk in but you break right through.

We went today, the trails were marked very well until we got to the end by the fire tower road! We either missed a turn somewhere or not but at that intersection we did not know where to go! We took a left and walked the road back to our car. Other then that, we had a greet time and would do it again

not at all hard. very flat and extremely well marked. my dog really enjoyed the trails. I combined with the Dickinson fire tower trail for more distance.

Very easy. Conditions are a little icy in spots. Of course we were the only people today

Beautiful trail. Have snowshoed as well. Would certainly not consider it as difficult or hard. However,depending on your activity level, I guess it could be.

The best feature of this hike is that it hugs the lake throughout. My dog enjoyed dips in and out along the way! Footing can get a bit tricky because of tree roots, so it's wise to prepare for a skinned knee (which I learned the hard way-LOL),

Nice trail with varying difficulty levels. On average, I'd rate it moderate instead of hard. There's a tiny pebble beach along the way, which was a refreshing spot for our dog (and my feet!) to cool off.

Rather technical, but not much for elevation. Well maintained and marked in my opinion. At times the trail got wide, but the blaze was always spottable. I would run this trail again if in the area.

Combined this with Fire Tower and it was a good hike. Pretty forest views. Good if you want to work on your cardio and just get some miles in. Trail is mostly flat with tree roots. A few rocky areas.

Not well marked but Long Pond is almost entirely in view. The trail is also on Google maps. Considering it’s close proximately to the Capital district, Grafton Park and the Long Pond are both clean and very well maintained.

There are a lot of smaller interconnecting trails here, two parking spaces (the location linked here takes you to the second parking area), and a lean to. The second parking area has a good map printed out. Didn't to all of it, but would be glad to come back.

Perfect for my 5yr old & 8yr old. Nice picnic spots too.
