Glimmerglass State Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Glimmerglass State Park sits on the northeastern shore of Otsego Lake, the source of the Susquehanna River. Hyde Hall, an impressive nineteenth-century limestone mansion designed by architect Phillip Hooker also stands within the park’s boundaries.
The main campground, close to the park entrance, contains 38 grassy or gravel sites arranged in two loops with a bathroom between them. Somewhat farther into the park, opposite the large day-use beach pavilion area, camping is permitted year-round at six primitive campsites that share a pit toilet. Five short hiking routes, ranging from 0.5 mile to 2 miles, lead to a quiet beaver pond, the oldest covered bridge in the United States, and the top of 1,800-foot Mount Wellington."
