Pretty easy hike. Best to start from the Rolling Hills Campground inside the state park. As marked, the trail has you parking illegally on private property as your start point.

What a great hike. The trails are easy and clean. The scenic views are spectacular, that includes the water. Beautiful place.

The color of the lakes are spectacular and the water is so clean. The trails are an easy walk and well maintained. It's a little over three miles to do both lakes.

Great fall hike.

lots of room to run. very flat.

We only logged 3.5 miles when trekking around both lakes. The trail is very easy to gravel path to walk and provides lots of photo opportunities. The interpretive boards along the route give great explanation of why the lakes are green/blue. Today, there were lots of people on the trail and their dogs. Kudus to the trail managers providing dog dump stations along the trail. There are lots of other trails in this park and I suggest to utilize the trail maps provided at the visitors center to plan other trail options.

Very nice clean trails and place where people can walk dogs. Everyone here seems very appreciative of the nature and tend to respect the rules.

Nice easy trail around 2 Glacier Lakes. unbelievable water color!

Very family and dog friendly trail around a nice lake.

This is an awesome loop with views of these unique lakes almost the entire time! Great trail

another fast ride

Great trail for a leisurely walk or a jog. The trail is flat, wide and well maintained. We walk it with my 4 year old and 10 year old. Plenty of benches to stop and take in the view. If camping at the park there are smaller access trails to get to Round Lake so you don’t have to hike in from Long Lake!

I wanted to check out a new trail leaving round lake and this led to Pine Hills Camp Store - good to know - I think I took some unmarked trails back down to the Green Lake trail - easy to navigate but there aren’t railings and it’s edge is steep in spots so small children would need to be seriously supervised - otherwise I liked the peacefulness of it !

pretty decent place to walk a lot of snakes ticks an overgrown brush. The only challenging trails are the white and purple one. I do recommend downloading the map if you've never been here before all the trails pretty much intertwined with each other so you may get lost if you're not paying attention. Great place to bring your dog walking ride a bike. Brown Trail is basically a dead end it goes into a neighborhood and you have to turn around. There always a lot of mosquitoes here a lot of snakes and a lot of ticks except for in the winter you do see several do your hair so make sure you check your dogs thoroughly cuz I never come here without seven of them on him

An okay hike, not challenging in any way other than the amount of miles. The meadow area was nice with lots of trails, so one could get some miles in just staying there. Quite a few bikers on those trails. There were a few spots in the middle part of the hike where the trail had changed from the map on All Trails. Easy enough to find your way around though. Also a part of the middle section is on/next to a road.

If you are looking for a nice family day hike- I wouldn’t recommend this trail. I would say just go to the actual lake and do the trails there. The perimeter trails were nice- near the beginning and end you are in a field with a lot of wildflowers and little shade, and some overgrown paths at times. I would come back again to run or bike the beginning, it was quite nice, but if you aren’t an avid hiker I would stick to the nice lake trails Green Lakes offers.

Beautiful. The aqua blue and green water are transcendent. Peaceful. The hike around the two lakes is simple...and even on a weekend was not crowded. Not to crazy about the crowds on the beaches and in the campgrounds, but the hike around both lakes was beautiful. Lots of shade. Lots a beautiful water views.

It’s beautiful forever ❤️

The lakes are beautiful! Feels “tropical” there! Our whole family loves it!

Great trails easy to find your way around. Many different trails to loop together and add up your miles.

Beautiful lake. Hike is very easy. Great for family

Pretty nice hike. A little noisier than I would have liked between lawnmower from a home on Woodchuck Hill Rd and the sound of gunfire from the DeWitt Rod and Gun club. But a nice secluded hike. We only saw 2 other people the whole time. Watch for ticks! Found one on my wife and 2 on our dog afterwards. But the pond and wetland flora were amazing. Incredible diversity if you are into plants — we counted a dozen species of ferns, some of which I have not seen in the wild here in CNY. A hidden gem!
