“Great Lake, Gorgeous Area, Terrible Trails”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

Angelworm Lake is really nice. Very pretty and serene. The views from around the lake are great. However, WARNING FOR HIKERS. There is a 'trail' that goes around the lake but because it is a Wilderness Area THE TRAILS ARE NOT MARKED. They want to protect the beauty and the 'feel' of loneliness. Ok thats great but for a hiker trying to accomplish a loop hike you can forget it unless you are pretty saavy with a topo map and compass. Good luck finding that map. There are so so so many intersecting trails from bear/moose/canoes/kayaks that you will not be sure which trail is for you. We attempted this as a day hike and half turned back and half got really really lost. We are talking exceptionally experienced hikers. So I do recommend the lake and the hike was nice till the lost thing became a factor. DO NOT GO WITHOUT A SUPER GREAT MAP, a COMPASS and a HEADLAMP.
