The lake trail is a woods walk on an old carriage road circling Sagamore Lake. This is less than a 5 mile loop around Sagamore road. Travel quietly, you may stumble upon wildlife in the pines area before the bridge, located on the backside of the trail. Family Friendly, relatively level in a Wilderness Area.
