Description

This is an easy stroll along the edge of the lake. Wide and flat with easy footing along its entire length, this is a great trail for families and people of all ages. Head just left of the lake from the parking lot and continue on the easy-to-follow path.

Most people do this trail as an out and back, but you can also use this as the beginning of a loop up to Chauncey Peak by continuing on to the Giuffrida Park Blue Trail, or as the beginning of a loop around the lake by continuing on to the Giuffrida Park White Trail (Unmaintained).

This trail is also part of the blue-blazed Mattabesett Trail, which is part of the New England National Scenic Trail.

The Giuffrida Park White Trail is more subtle on this side of the lake, but still not too hard to follow if you keep your eyes open.
