Fairly easy trail that takes you along a few switchbacks and a nice walk along one of the parks many meadows. It begins at Flat Top Manor and along the way is short detour to Cone Cemetery. The trail is then switchbacks through the forest all the way to the summit with two decent overlooks along the way. Once you reach the top, you will find the fire tower which is about 4 stories and lets you stand just above the tree line.Show more

Beautiful walk around a mountain lake, lots of obvious beaver activity. The Price Lake Loop Trail circles a beautiful mountain lake. This is a good hike for anyone due to the short distance and flat terrain. Some areas of the trail may be muddy after winter snows or spring rains. From the Price Lake Overlook, go to the left over the bridge. Follow the trail into the woods. As you walk around the lake you'll notice a lot of beaver sign on the surrounding trees. The muddy areas on the trail near the back of the lake are also a result of the beavers work. Continue following this easy, flat trail around the lake. You'll walk through a nice campground area as you return back to the parking area. Show more
