Tried to get to in our motorhome. The only spot off of 307 where there was parking was closed off. After circling in the residential neighborhoods that surround it we gave up and stopped at the overlook point. Our brakes began smoking and before we...More

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.

Very well maintained paved walking path around Lake scranton. 3.5 Mike walking path is great for everyone from gentle stroll to a quick run.

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...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...More

There is another entrance that is wheel chair accessible it's the one that has limited parking. Then the main parking lot had a steep incline that I would not recommend taking an electric WC.
