This is a good long walk around scranton lake which helps provide the area with fresh water. The only downfall is the lakes conspicuous absence of toilet facilities

This trail is paved all the way round, and, since it stays fairly close to the lake, it's pretty level. Because it's a reservoir the trail stays well away from the water. It's really just a walk in the woods, with no spectacular views. Beware...More

We stopped by for the trolley tour and this park gave us a good chance to stretch our legs and enjoy a cup of coffee.

Scranton Lake is a little difficult to find-- particularly the parking access areas. However, if you study a local map, you should be able to find it. Not sure if your GPS would be as good as some personal directions as the main parking lot...More

You follow a nicely paved trail all around the lake. It's a nice easy walk in the woods. No dogs allowed. No wheels either. Just for walkers and runners. It took us a little over an hour to walk 3 1/2 miles. The parking lot...More

Great way to get a good walk or run in. Quiet and peaceful. Careful and watch for deer also use bug spray just to be safe. But a great relaxing area.

Very nice paved trail. Great views of Lake Scranton. For a non-local parking was hard to find. I didn't see any restrooms or port-o-lets. Lots of people walking and running. Felt very safe.

It was re-opened and then re-closed. I believe there is work being done on the dam and entire loop is not open.
