This delightful hiking path circles Lake Stevens, named for Olympic bobsledder Hubert Stevens. The lake is stocked with trout, the trees represent all 34 species native to the Adirondacks, and there's a picnic table and two little bridges, one of them made of stone.
How to get there
From the 4-way intersection in Wilmington take a left onto Route 431 (Whiteface Mountain Road). Follow here for 3-miles to the Toll Road on the left, park near the gate; but not in front of it.
The path is flat and fairly smooth, so plan on 10 minutes at a fast walk or more at a leisurely stroll. Kids and adults alike will enjoy. Be sure to keep an ear open for birds -- there are plenty of them here!
