Enjoy serene streamside strolling in a memorable mixed forest of hardwoods and evergreens. The Otter Creek Trail sticks close to the Parkway for its entire 3.5-mile length—three trailheads allow you to create your own hike. The route’s terrain is so gentle that any distance qualifies as a moderate hike. You can also add a quick but scenic loop around Otter Lake to include a ruined mountaineer cabin; it also makes a great short hike by itself.
