Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Want to get away from it all? Spencer Lake feels about as far away from it all as you can get, 40 miles from Cleveland. Once here, chances are fairly good that you won’t meet another hiker on the trail. (But if the catfish are biting, you won’t be alone.)"

This was a pleasant walk in the woods. The pathway is pretty well signposted, and there are bridges and walkways where required. We saw very few other walkers, even though it was a sunny Saturday in June.

Very nice Nature Center. Trail is maintained better than most. Cave is not a cave, just a dark, water-carved portion of the rock. Off-trail hiking is restricted there. A variety of trees and flowers and birds along the trail. A good nature hike.

The wider bridle paths are not my favorite kind of trail, but once you loop around to the narrower hiking trails and see the caves, this hike is very worth it. When I went, the park was new enough that it was very low traffic and a very nice hike.
