Lovely, peaceful place to walk or run. Safe, paved, scenic! And sometimes the deer actually come right up to you! Lots of shade too.

If you like a scenic 3 1/2 mile run or walk, this is an ideal place. Cool shade in the summer. Park in upper lot and take path to paved area.

Perfect place for a nice walk or run! The road is immaculately kept. No bikes, skates, or skateboards allowed. Also no boating, fishing or pets allowed as this lake is a water reservoir. It can be a challenging 31/4 miles as there are some uphill areas but there's no hurry to get around it. The beauty of the lake and... More

This path around the lake is perfect for running, jogging, and walking! There are barely any hills. Everyone there is friendly and waves to you. It always made me feel welcomed. Dogs and Bikes are not allowed that is the only downfall. The views are beautiful all year round!

The path around Lake Scranton is very satisfying. There is almost no traffic on the road (used only by the water company that owns the lake) and the views are great. Since it is a paved path and nearly flat, this isn't a hearty outdoor adventure but it is bigger and a lot more fulfilling than the average city park... More

Great place for a walk, run 3 1/2 miles around the lake beautiful scenery, something for all ages. If you like wildlife it's all around you, deer and birds walk right by you. Also beautiful place if you are a picture buff. Nature at its finest. It's also free!

Truly remarkable nature trail around the lake. It is about a 3.5 mile walk and depending on your pace usually takes 45min to 1hr. One of the most peaceful and beautiful places on the planet. We are proud of outdoor gem in our city.
