“A little-used singletrack trail to the Lost Lake in Mahlon Dickerson Reservation.”— Lou Poulas
This trail is accessible via the Highlands Trail (Teal) and is an out-and-back style run. It is singletrack through many hills and valleys typical to the New Jersey Highlands Area, and includes several sections up through exposed bedrock. It is one of the few parts of Mahlon Dickerson where you cannot here the sounds of civilization.
The Lost Lake itself is relaxing and there are beaver dams to be seen on the south end.
While not the best trail in the park in terms of scenery, it is the best in terms of solitude and well worth some time.
Note: Once past Lost Lake, the trail continues outside of Mahlon Dickerson and can be followed to Berkshire Valley Road.
