You would think walking or running the same 3.57 mile loop several times a week would be mundane. Not a chance! Whether it's a leisurely stroll or running laps to keep fit, there is always something new around the next bend. The people and the scenery make the 3 1/2 miles seemingly fly by. There are several ups & downs... More

Embark on a 3.5 mile loop around a reservoir. The path is paved and is often shady. You get great views of the lake and some wildlife. I had a red-tailed hawk land right above me on a limb and it allowed me to take its picture. I also saw some wild turkeys. This is a nice place for a... More

Lake Scranton is a beautiful place to take a loving walk with someone special and an awesome jogging trail for the health enthusiast. With the ambient temperatures of the Lake, the calm nature of the water and the occasional wildlife, a definitely good place to walk or run!

Mostly level and paved surface with a slight grade in one portion. Saw a red tail hawk from a few feet on a low branch, it just stayed on the branch as we walked on by also saw what appeared to be a beaver in the brook.

This path led us through the cool, peaceful woods, and then out to a beautiful view of the lake. We saw some type of a hawk sitting on a tree branch and then 3 baby deer as we were leaving the woods. The stone bridge is beautiful also.The 3.5 mile path gave us our exercise for the day! Bring your... More

I've always adored the walking path around lake Scranton. Not only does it bring back fond memories of walking the lake with my grandfather as a child, it continues to be a serene and dreamlike place to escape to as an adult. It is always clean, safe, and gorgeous, any time of the year. One note for travelers, it is... More

I travel to Scranton very often for work. Stay at the Radisson downtown and you are just down the road from this amazing jog and walk (whatever is best for you) Absolutely perfect for the business traveler.
