“Beautiful scene of Echo Lake and a great workout!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

We followed the Canada Cliff trail which is attached to the Beech Cliff Loop. In some of our trail books, it was considered strenuous, which I think is partly true. Most of the walk consists of walking on tree roots and there are many times when you have to hoist yourself onto rocks. This is not a trail for young children or older adults! If you are up for a good workout, you will thoroughly enjoy the view at the top--beautiful!

Well worth the time and the effort for families, though not with young children.

“Wonderful hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2012

Parked down at the lake and took the cliffs ladder trail up. It's steep with about half a dozen ladders but very short. A very cool hike. Once up top, the views from the cliffs were stunning. An absolutely fabulous hike. Got back to the parking lot via the new Canada cliffs trail which was an easy walk through the woods on brand new trails. I'll be back in summer of 2012!

Wonderful view of Echo Lake after a short walk. Makes you feel like you've climbed a mountain.
