Echo Lake Trail

Echo Lake Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The flat Lake Trail in Echo Lake State Park is a pleasant and easy trek along the edge of a frozen lake. The 1.0-mile loop never strays far from water’s view and offers both views of distant Mount Kearsarge North and the striking climbing ledges—White Horse and Cathedral.

The two ledges, where rock climbers scale granite in summer and fall, and ice climbers play their slippery game in winter, dwarf the small lake. Popular in summer as a hiking and mountain biking trail, the Lake Trail maintains a certain degree of charm during the snow months. It isn’t unusual to come across walkers and their dogs, or even a slow-moving snowmobile, during an outing on the pine-laden trail. Though this trail is used by snowmobiles, snowshoers and skiers can get around this by just circumnavigating the lake when the ice is sufficiently thick and solid. Surface quality: Ungroomed, but packed."

Lovely peaceful walk around the lake- a bit icy in spots but had yak trax and ski poles which helped a lot.
