I thought it was a beautiful scene. There is a bit of a walk before the lake itself, but that’s not a big deal. My best friend and I went, and I brought my dog. It was nice way to get fresh air and take some Instagram-worthy pictures. We went in January, so it wasn’t incredibly crowded either. If I were to go back, it would be to do some running or to get my dog out again. People were friendly and the trail itself wasn’t difficult, so it should be perfect for that. Me not going back doesn’t speak to the trail as much as it’s because I’m always looking for a new place to adventure. If ever I’m looking for somewhere familiar just to take it easy, this would be an option.

Climbed this on 1/9/19. Lots of fresh snow. Snowshoes would help for sure. We broke out a good deal of the trail especially higher up. Still a very nice hike

A peaceful trek on skis through a winter decorated wonderland. Trails are maintained with excellent care allowing one to enjoy the beauty of the area.

Excellent trails maintained with care, allowing one to enjoy the beauty of the area. Woodcutter Loop and Norm's Path are great for a short and fairly easy ski. Looking forward to more snow and more time in these beautiful woods.

Great easy hike to start off a day. Trail is very well marked and the lake is gorgeous to see in the winter. Would not say microspikes are needed if you stick to loop trail but if you plan on doing the waterfall trail nearby they would come in handy. Will be back to explore more of the area

very muddy this time of year, almost swamp like but views of Lake Ontario was the payoff.

This is less of a trail and more of a paved walking area through the woods. It usually had a lot of people on bikes. I liked to take my dog here but not on hot days because like I said it’s pavement. Very beautiful though!

Nice relaxing hike. Easy for kids and dogs.

Trail was fine up to summit. Then frozen waterfalls thwarted us getting to the summit. Ice axes would have been required to go further. Crampons a must.

Did this hike over the summer with my 10 year old daughter. Spent at least a half day venturing to the falls and a little further up. Well marked trail, some stone jumping if you're up for it. The falls is well worth the hike.

Recently did this hike with my 10 year old daughter. We did't do the through hike...only hiked to Bennet Lake. Nice easy trail. There was actually minimal snow on the ground. The running water directly on the footpath was frozen so though so we had to walk to the sides, for a good ways... though we didnt use any ice gear. From where we hiked, Bennet Lake was a ways from the trail, slightly downhill, to our right and we nearly passed it!! Peaceful and beautiful.

This is a wonderful walk-turns-hike that yes, starts on pavement from the parking lot but once you get into the woods, oh my - beautiful! A rambling walk with several unexpected steep parts but nothing treacherous or terribly difficult. Wet today but hiked without spikes or snowshoes. Did just fine. Really enjoyed this one. Trail is marked well; easy to follow because you just keep the waters on your left all the way! Streams were running strong but easy to cross.

We hiked to the Tremper fire tower but from the Willow trailhead. There isn't an Altrails map for that route but I have suggested one. There is now good parking off the road at Willow (near the end of Jessup Road). There is no trail register yet. Great hike, steep in places but wonderful views most of the way. Our recorded mileage was 7.4 miles.

1/2/19, 23 degrees, blue skies & no snow. I started the first two miles of my hike with a friendly man and his two dogs. Hiked the purple trail and proceeded along the canal. Hit all of the highlights along the way. Covered 8.3 miles and enjoyed every minute of it.

this is super close to me so I am there very frequently, lovely all year. lots of wildlife including the occasional heron! the nature walk is very easy and if you are up for something more challenging there are tons of trails that criss cross all over the mountain. its important to note that during the winter the road to access all camp sites are closed so you have to hike it in! if you are a frequent visitor I would suggest getting an empire pass as well : )

Great walk to do with your fur babies or children.

it's steep hike up but the view is nice. it can get tricky towards the top for older dogs.

perfect for a quick morning hike

Dec 28. After light snow. Nice walk. Trail overlooks reservoir. Keep water on your left. The return half of loop, the trail is not flat and is more trying. May want to return the way you came depending on conditions. (Snow, heavy rain)

We love this trail. 1/4 mile from my house so we use it often. Trail is well marked and it makes you feel good. Many different routes to take.

I've been walking this trail since it was opened. many improvements over the years. it is listed as a 4.2 mile loop, but there are 2 side trails off the main trail. 1- is a nice hilly 1\2 mile loop-called the Mary
Woodill trail, (recommend hiking boots, not sneakers-parts wet\muddy) 2nd is off the 'mountain trail' passed the 'high tension wire' towers-approx. 1 mile loop in length, adding to your walk for a total of almost 6 miles!

Great spot for a day hike. Good views with little elevation change. Parking is down the dead-end street. Watch out for the giant pot holes just before the parking area though.

No snow on the trails- a bit of ice in very infrequent spots. Viewed the reddest, most spectacular sunset of my life here tonight. ❤️ Very peaceful here and although I didn’t see any wildlife directly, I saw plenty of scat and tracks to show me they were close by.

Great secluded trail off Warren County Road 21. Crosses over a small stream a few times, no bridges. Some bushwhacking may be required for overgrowth.

nice brisk hike, very easy and flat but I would suggest micro spikes this time of year.

not bad for a close by mini hike

A nice short trail, but there is some graffiti and garbage near the beach.

Most days we have seen a few other people walking, but it is not crowded.

We only walked the west loop in Dec. It was well marked and frozen at that time. The wooden pathway was interesting. we saw a lot of wildlife footprints in the snow; mainly fox, coyotes and deer. We will try the eastern loop at a later date.
