    ( 1.5 miles, moderate to difficult): One maintained hiking trail extends from the park entry booth to the river and is a moderate to difficult hike due to the hilly terrain. It is easier on the way out to the river than on the return. This trail is used by snowmobiles during the winter. Other trails are available but they are not maintained.

Snowmobiling

  • 17 miles of snowmobile trails from Lake St. George to Frye Mountain in Montville are groomed by the Bureau.
