Paris Mountain State Park requires an entrance fee. Normally this is $5 per person. You can purchase a year long park pass that covers all occupants in your vehicle for $50 and can be used in all inland state parks. Park hours during summer are 8:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m. and during winter are 8:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.
Need to Know
There are restrooms near either end of the trail.
Use Mountain Creek as a warm up / cool down for longer runs in the park.
The Mountain Creek Trail connects the Lake Placid Trail
to Sulfer Springs Trail. It is singletrack with enough mild technical challenges to keep it interesting, with a few roots and rocks on the trail and plenty of zig zagging through the woods. The route is marked with orange blazes.
At mile 0.75, take a right to stay on the trail. There is a sign that says "Sulfur Springs this direction" and Mountain Creek the other. It is still Mountain Creek for 0.5 miles and will end where Sulfur Springs crosses the paved road. This trail is perfect for beginners, but should never get old. Keep going on the Sulfur Springs Loop
Trail for a real challenge.
