You won't find a more beautiful walk than this 2 mile, flat, walk around Lake Mary. Stop by the Lake Mary store to arrange a boat or canoe to go after the big trout known to exist in this lake. On the other end of the lake is Pokonobe Lodge where you can enjoy lunch or shop in their store.

Cabin rentals are the way to go. Pontoon boating on the lake is reasonable. Fresh air and great times. Lots of bears and deer up here at 9,000 ft altitude

It was a gorgeous blue skies day to hike in the snow along Lake Mary road while the cross country skiers skied on the groomed Tamarack cross country trails. We sat at the picnic table for the view of Crystal Crgs across the frozen lake.

We only do this in winter with snow on the ground because we are always the only ones out but we love walking around the road that loops the lake. In winter the road is virtually never driven on so its just a big white trail. Peaceful and beautiful

Beautiful scenery and well maintained road around the lake. Try to get here in the afternoon when the sun reflects the mountains on the lake surface. Unfortunately there is no hiking trail around lake Mary but you can hike one of the other lakes in the area.

This sub alpine lake is lovely in every way. We hiked around the perimeter, enjoying the trees, water and sunlight after a light snowfall.

I enjoy going to Lake Mary to hike and enjoy the amazing scenic views. There are nany opportunities to hike around nearby lakes while in the area.

It was very windy the day we went, so not sure if my review is accurate. It was very pretty and looked like a lot of fisherman may go to.

Stunning vistas. The lake is a tranquil place. Many were fishing even in the blustery wind. There is camping and picnic areas as well.
