Loading Trails

From the picnic shelter, begin this easy-walking, mostly-level, nature-trail loop along the shores of Lake Placid. At the far end of the lake, you will descend and ascend the steep slopes below the dam. You may see squirrels, birds, turtles, snakes and a variety of other wildlife as you walk amid tall trees in the natural habitat. You will circle the lake, cross a boardwalk foot bridge, and pass the swimming area, before you return to the picnic shelter where you began.

Restrooms are available at the picnic shelters. Insect repellant is recommended in warm weather. Pets are permitted on a leash.
