This section of the Lake Minnewaska Trail at Minnewaska State Park Preserve is an easy 0.6-mile one-way trail that runs from the picnic area on the eastern side of Lake Minnewaska and follows the lake around to the Wildmere parking area.
There are great views of the lake and it's a little quieter than the northern sections of the trail, especially on the weekends. The trail is easy to follow and the grade is fairly level, which makes this a great walk for anyone.
Pets: Leashed dogs are allowed on this trail.
Fee: The fee for parking at Minnewaska is $10 per car.
