We have been walking the lake for over 4 decades. I would recommend parking by the firehouse on East Mountain Road, it is more secure, and provides easier access. Another review... read more

We have been walking the lake for over 4 decades. I would recommend parking by the firehouse on East Mountain Road, it is more secure, and provides easier access. Another review mentioned a bike ride, bikes are not permitted, and dogs are also prohibited anywhere on the 3.57 mile pathway.

Well kept, beautiful walking path in Scranton. Approximately 3.5 miles clean, paved path. Lake view is exceptional.

Great Place to run or walk. No pets allowed though. Difficult to get to with a baby carriage - but doable. Worth the drive on a beautiful day!

For those who enjoy walking this is an excellent way to get exercise. It is three and a half miles around and the paths are paved. There are places along the way that you can sit and relax and enjoy the scenery. There are many squirrels, chipmunks, birds, geese and deer that are relatively tame and enjoy food that you... More

The paved trail goes all around the lake for about 3 miles. No bathrooms on the trail. Very peaceful and calming for a walk

What a beautiful way to spend your time and get exercise too. Lake Scranton is 3.5 around. It is well maintained and you will always see others that automatically say hello to you. The lake is right there. You can see wildlife during your journey. I have spent a lot of time walking around the lake. You will enjoy it!

Great 3.5 mile workout. Scenery is superb great place to work out and you don't feel like your working out. Wish I could visit every day!

Three and a half miles of bliss. Can be done in four seasons. No pets/bikes allowed. My favorite season is autumn- the trees are priceless. Walkers and joggers alike. No bathrooms.
