It was a lot of fun to walk though. I'd go back again. Rachel Koldenhoven (91) almost 2 years ago N/A: 5 Completed 2 Reviews I grew up very close to Lake Katherine and have always loved it. I have many memories here. Not much of a hike, but it is a very beautiful place to see. They have gardens, lots of wildlife, and a pretty cool shop/information center. The atmosphere is great. The people there are kind and always helpful. A great place to take photos for events also! charisse jacobs (47) almost 2 years ago N/A: 1 Completed 1 Reviews like it Mick Houston (74) almost 2 years ago N/A: 1 Completed 1 Reviews Very nice trail and park area, well maintained. Lots of places to stop, sit and relax. Plenty of ducks, geese, turtles and a swan family around the lake. I would rate this trail as Easy not moderate, its pretty flat. The directions are wrong. The park is located off of Route 83 (119th St.) and Route 43 (Harlem Ave.) Go west on Rt 83 to 75th. St. Go north. Park is at the end of the block. Susan Mowery (99) about 2 years ago N/A: 2 Completed 2 Reviews I love this trail because it's an easy walk with no inclines and you know exact distance around the lake. Very family and dog friendly trail. Great for a light hike and/or run and close to Starbucks ;) John Kasimos about 2 years ago N/A: 13 Completed 1 Reviews Short, easy, beautiful and relaxing. A perfect midday escape. Margaret Tobin (67) about 2 years ago N/A: 2 Completed 2 Reviews Very easy, fairly level trail in beautiful setting around lake. Abundant waterfowl. About 1 mile around, some portions handicapped accessible. Dave McCracken (375) about 2 years ago N/A: 2 Completed 1 Reviews Very nice 1 mile loop around the lake. Crowded with courteous, nice hikers. Good for a short midday walk or a just to get outside for a little bit. Karen Krzak over 2 years ago N/A: 1 Completed 1 Reviews Very easy trail. Work very near and often do the short loop around the Lake at lunch. 1 mile. Always lots to see. Ducks, swan, geese, turtles, beautiful flowers in spring and summer and glorious colors in the fall.
