“Nice for Running!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

If you enjoy trailrunning this is a great location. Be sure to grab a map from the sign-box though because there are some confusing intersections without signs. The trails are even but with just enough rocks and roots to challenge a trailrunner. Awesome views of the lake along the way. Unfortunately I think it gets overlooked by the busy forest rangers because it is sometimes littered with garbage which is sad. So bring a small trashbag and do a good deed or two along your run.

“Nice trails.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

I really like these trails, especially the views of the lake on the west side. In the summer months you can swim at a view spots off the trails. Also great for snowshoeing in the winter.

“Just a fine walk in the woods, on the edge of town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

You will be blown away at the views of scenic LP from here. Easy access from behind the Howard Johnson. Well traveled, flat and easy to find your way in the woods to the dam

“Perfect afternoon stroll”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

Tucked behind hotels in a residential area, this little state-owned outcropping makes for a nice walk one afternoon after you spent the morning climbing one of the summits. The trails are well-marked in most places (the intersection of Boundary Trail/Jackrabbit/Local Outpost trail near the dam is a little weak and might cause some confusion, but there is no way to get lost.) Great for dogs and kids - lots of roots, but few rocks and soft underbrush. Beautiful trees and views of Lake Placid. We walked from the Crowne Plaza through some local neighborhoods and the round trip from the hotel, to the Peninsula, around all the trails there, and back was around 6 miles or so.

“great strolling area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

Beautiful, flat short strolls when you just want to stretch your legs and don't have time for a long hike. Make sure to go all the way to the dam. It is beautiful all around. Can be connected with the long 'Jack Rabbit' Ski trail in winter. Walk from the parking lot (behind howard johnsons and up a smooth dirt road for ~1 mile) to the dam takes about 20 minutes or so. Various loops possible. Explore and enjoy.
