This 2.3 km walk around Peck Lake is easy and mostly level, and takes just over an hour to complete (with photo stops). There are quite a few roots and rocks, and lots of different viewpoints. If you’re into mushrooms, many species grow along the...More

We are here for a few days, and this was one of the trails we did today with our puppy. It is very pretty, winding its way completely around the lake. It is not especially difficult. The views are gorgeous, especially now that the colours...More

This is a fairly quick, but rugged, trail. It circles Peck Lake. There are nice views of the lake. Lots of little ups and downs and tree roots. It took about an hour.

Pleasant short trail with a little elevation around a scenic lake. Ideal for less experienced hikers.

We tried Tef trail this week, but was despite the advice from the visitor center at the east side still too icy to walk. Must be very nice though.

A great hike in the winter, trail was well used so we did not need snowshoes but cleats very helpful in Ivey sections. Easy trail to follow, good views, not as many visitors in the winter. Worth a visit.

When you enter the parking lot, try to get one of the spots at the end immediately on your left upon entering. Much easier when it is time to leave. Lovely, shorter walk that had one icy patch near the beginning but was straight forward...More

It is a relatively leveled trail along a lake. At time you get farther from the water and then you get back close to the lake. It's very scenic in fall when leaves are colorful.

This was our first trail that we did last week, basically the trail follows this small lake, takes about 45 minutes to do. Nothing special, a couple of boardwalks here and there so you don't get soaked. Good trail to start the day off and...More
