Lake Scranton and the walk around the Lake is not only beautiful but peaceful and healthy!! I would also like to point out that may people that get married, use the Stone Deck that looks out over the Lake, especially in fall when the trees glow.

Great way to get a good walk or run in. Quiet and peaceful. Careful and watch for deer also use bug spray just to be safe. But a great relaxing area.

Very nice paved trail. Great views of Lake Scranton. For a non-local parking was hard to find. I didn't see any restrooms or port-o-lets. Lots of people walking and running. Felt very safe.

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!

I lived in the area for 30 years and am not out of town. Two best things about Scranton area -- Lake Scranton and Old Forge pizza! I've run at a lot of different places in my years and none can compare to LS. Families with kids stroll around in afternoon so if ur a serious runner get there before... More
