Mountain Lakes Nature Preserve Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This fast hike offers human and canine a fun few hours any time of year, especially in winter. The preserve is divided into three main areas, each with a distinctive adventure and blaze color of its own.

This 400-acre park, once an estate, is a hidden jewel in the middle of suburbia, but you and your dog will soon feel far away and hear only birdsong. Your dog will keep cool meandering through wetlands and streams, a boulder field, and pine and spruce groves with a few large, interesting trees."
