The Northmoreland Park Lake Trail at Northmoreland Park in Apollo, Pennsylvania is an easy 1.1 mile loop hike that loops around Northmoreland Park Lake. The trail is a flat brick walkway that gives views of the lake as you hike around it, except for the southern shores.
On the southern shore of the lake, the trail runs through a wooded area for about 0.3 miles or so with benches and at least one small trail that leads down to the lake's shore.
