Trail is starting pretty nice. Different terrains. But aboult half mile in starts to get overgrown. Hard way to stay on the path since you cant see it. Hiked part of it with my 9yearbold daughter. She liked the rocks but not so much go though the tall grass.

This trail variation is actually a combination of 3 trails: Tuscarora, Horseshoe, ans Standing Stone trails. We completed the trail counterclockwise at the beginning of June. The trail at the bottom of the mountain (Tuscarora trail) was very muddy from several recent storms but still passable. The accent in this direction (Horseshoe trail) was very steep and did not realy have steps in many locations making footing tricky. I actually would not have wanted to descend this part of the trail. The trail across the ridge (Standing Stone trail) was almost overgrown with jagger bushes. I'm not sure how often it is maintained but in a few weeks the blackberries will be hard to navigate through. The descent was a gradual decline, a road, which also serves as a horse trail.

Last half of the trail is downhill on what seems like a "run off" trail for water from the top parts of the mountain. It was dry during my hike, so it was not an issue - however may be more treacherous the wetter the trail gets. Great hike, you can walk Augwick Road back to the parking lot so it doesn't have to an out and back.

Not the most exciting of trails, but a nice little stroll, especially for beginners looking for a little incline. It was a nice spooky late October hike.

Parked at the beginning of the Tower Road and crossed Aughwick to hit Lincoln Trail, then made a right onto Lockard, which was very clear and not rocky. There was a spring in the middle of Lockard where it meets Fore Trail. I took Fore right and climbed the ridge back to Aughwick Road and followed the road back to my car. Very rocky on Fore Trail

The trail follows very closely to the lake yielding excellent views on the trail. This is an easy trail built mainly for walking. Very well kept and traveled.

Easy walk around the lake. Really short, we do it a couple times when we go. Half of it is really shady, near the campsites. Not quiet by any means, usually crowded, no incline, but that doesn't mean that it's bad. Better to rent a boat and go out on the lake.

If you are looking for a good trail for the family, then this is the trail for you. The trail encircles lake at Cowans Gap State Park. The trail is mostly flat but has some slight elevation change. It almost seems like two different trails. The trail on the beach side is a little more active. The trail in this area is better maintained. The opposite side of the lake is used a little less. The trail surface is a little rough in some areas, but still negotiable for the family. The trail stays in pretty good condition even after a rain with minimal muddy spots (especially for a lake side trail). The trail can be accessed in about four or five different locations with little extra walking. Bring your camera because there are some beautiful views along the way and you never know what you might see. The park also offers plenty of other activities for after the hike.
