Good for beginner hiking, well maintained trails and gorgeous view of Lake Placid. We encountered several families and dogs out on the trail. Really nice/relaxing outdoor experience.

This is a nice, short, easy walk through the woods and along the lake. The road to the trail was hard to find...it's off 86 near the Quality Inn. The road looks like a driveway and it's right next the sign. You walk down and...More

We enjoyed the Brewster Peninsula trails. Walked to them from out hotel in Lake Placid. Great little hike that took a couple hours. One of the paths follows along Lake Placid, don't miss that one. And make sure you take a map at the entrance.

This is one of the few ways left to see the actual lake of Lake Placid. The trails were not superbly-marked, but we found our way around well enough. You can only go around the lake so far in either direction as private property has...More

Very pleasant nature walk with many different trails to try. The Lakeshore trail offers beautiful views of Lake Placid.

We had a nice walk in the woods. It was sunny out and the coolness of the woods was refreshing. It was very muddy and wet and lots of tree roots to step over, but so pleasant. Not a lot of people. Would definitely recommend,...More

The trails were well cared for nice and easy. It's more a walk in the woods then a true hike for the real diehards. It would be a great place to take kids or for an inexperienced hiker. There are some nice views of Lake...More

First let me say that there is a Welcome/Visitor Center in downtown Lake Placid. They are very helpful in recommending trails, and directions. Also, if you go to this link it will give you information on the trail and... More

I believe there are signs saying "no swimming" but I am not positive. There is a dock and the trail is right next to the lake. It is technically private property so please respect the signs.
