We were here to hike and recommend getting off the Lake Shore Trail, which is lovely, and going into the woods. We used the Felton Trail, Pigeon Hills Trail and Tibay Trail which ended at the Lake. Lovely but not many people on the trails.

We we were driving by and decided to stop in for a hike. It is very pretty...but for someone there on a whim it was difficult to find a trailhead or any information.

This is a nice park for picnics, fishing, boating, cycling and jogging. It's clean and relatively maintained. Boat rentals and concessions during the season. They have restored the lakes health and it's also developed into a awesome fishery for bass.

This is about a 3 1/2 mile hike around Shawnee Lake. It is level for most of the hike and is very easy hiking. Most of the hike is shaded with a beautiful view of the lake. There are plenty of benches and picnic areas...More

For the most part it is. There is a steep incline at the breast of the dam. Maybe 25 feet. I see a lot of people pushing strollers along the trail.
