The Upper Lake Loop Trail at Mount Holyoke College is an easy 1 mile hike that leads along the upper lake. The trail is flat and mostly gravel, with paved sections near parking and along the dorms located off of Park St on the south side of the lake.
The trail is easy to follow as you just need to stay right or stay left to continue following the water, depending on which direction you walk it.
Waterfall: Along the western side of the lake is a dam with the Stony Brook waterfall cascading down, about 12 feet tall, that feeds into Stony Brook.
Dogs are allowed. No biking.
