This place is great with a wonderful mile hike path around the lake. Much to see as you hike and not an overly tough hike, just a few minor ups and downs. Take the kids and the dog.

I have visited many times. A small peaceful lake that is perfect for picnics, walking, fishing and paddling. I take my kayak and paddle around by myself.

This park is nestled away and has some paved trail, some dirt trail, some deciduous trees and some evergreens. Something for everyone. Check it out if you are in the area.

Great place to take my dog when I don't just to walk on a flat surface. It feels like you're up in the mountains and the walk around the lake is one that every fitness level can do.

There is a trail about a mile long that goes around a very scenic lake. The trail is paved partially, and the other part of the trail is dirt, so on wet days can be muddy. There are rocks and roots, so you do need...More

Beautiful, peaceful, relaxing lake park in middle of Peters Township. Safe and well maintained by the township. Trail can get a little muddy in some spots from rain but that's Mother Nature for you!

I love walking around this lake with my kids and wife. I also used to take my dog for beautiful walks as well. The trail can get a little soupy on some sections but it is shockingly peaceful, beautiful and interesting. It is a great...More
