A national magazine has touted Silver Lake as one of the fifteen best springtime campsites in the country. Its standards were right on track, but its season was too confined. In fact, the lakes, campgrounds, trails, and mountains that pack this scenic region make Mount Moosalamoo and Silver Lake great vacation playgrounds any time of year.
Outdoor options in the area are overwhelming, and the paths described here are suited to all hikers, whether taking a break from Branbury Beach or trekking through the forest to an overnight lakeside camp. This guide contains a collection of trails to mountain views and waterfront camps for day hikers and backpackers alike.
