Hiking at Lowell Lake


The Trail

The Lowell Lake Trail is a maintained loop of approximately 3.5 miles. Completely encircling Lowell Lake, the trail highlights passes a Revolutionary War-era cemetery, stands of large hardwood and white pine trees, and offers wonderful scenic views of the lake and surrounding wetlands. The trail is located on relatively flat terrain and the hike is of easy/moderate difficulty. Vertical rises are no more than 200 feet and grades are no more than twenty five degrees. The trail is well marked with blue paint blazes. The northern portion of the trail follows park service roads on both sides of the lake as well as approximately 1000 feet of Little Pond Road, a town road. Parking for the trail is available at the parking area located near the boat landing off Lowell Lake Road. We have a detailed map for guests showing the best way in with points of interest marked.
