Nice hike along the lake. Not too long or strenuous, especially after the day before on the mountain. If you want an easy hike with pretty view of lake, this is the one.

We wanted something a little more challenging in the end, but this trek was great, peaceful with not too many hikers. The views were great, some nice levation for lookouts and the trial was easy to follow, a liitle too easy for us, but we really enjoyed the scenery. We'll do it again but with our kids this time.

Brewster peninsula extends into the actual waters of Lake Placid from the southern shore. There are several hiking trails on the peninsula but we chose to walk the Lakeshore Trail section which follows the western edge of the peninsula. It was a very pleasant and easy walk. It's seems ironic that after years of visiting the Lake Placid area, about... More

Relaxing walk around Lake Placid with little or no climbing. Great way to see the flora and fauna of the area.

This is a very beautiful hike in the woods that opens to a beautiful lake view. Easy enough trail for all types of hikers. We managed to walk the whole thing with our 20 month old boy.

There are two main entrances to these trails. One is by the Howard Johnson's and the other is found if you go through the hotel property to follow the road that continues beyond a short distance. You will see cars parked to the left and a gated area. If you follow this trail it leads to a dam and an... More

We wanted a quick hike close to town and we found the trail head right behind the Howard Johnson restaurant. We did not know it was there until I saw it on Trip Advisor! It was an easy hike, and we made it to the dam on the end of Lake Placid. It was beautiful!

One of each of our kids' first "hikes"! You can get to the dam quickly or take a longer, roundabout way. We have a dog and it the dam is the standard dog swim area! We all wind up jumping in and swimming with the dog. Lake Placid is such a beautiful, clean lake. Just be careful, there are big... More

Trailhead hidden behind Howard Johnson restaurant. Like seeing the dam at the end of the trail. Nice easy walk compared to hiking the mountains.
