From the park o?ce of Alum Creek State Park, explore a network of trails that ramble along waters and wetlands large and small, as well as hills and hollows. First, head south on the Marina Trail to surmount ridges dividing streamlets ?owing to Alum Creek Lake. Turn around at Hollenback Road or dare to go on. Sooner or later you can turn back to the park o?ce trails and enter a close-knit network of interconnected paths that explore the surprisingly varied terrain of this shoreline. Enjoy both lakeside vistas that stretch for miles and intimate views of a serene cattail-lined pond. At other points you will walk through meadows and evergreen woods as well as upland hardwoods. Hiking mileage can vary from the suggested hike with the amount of e?ort and exploration you want to engage.
