Lake Side Trail is the longest of the three trails. It begins at the entrance to the camping area and follows the lakeshore in a westerly direction for about 1 mile arriving at the Beaver Hut Boating Area. A beaver house plus many signs of beaver activity may be viewed in this area. From the boating area the trail generally follows the lakeshore in a southerly direction for about 1 mile ending at the dam breast of Hills Creek Lake. This section of the trail offers an excellent variety of bird life attracted by seeds from white spruce, red-osier dogwood and viburnums that dominate this moist area. The trail then follows the park road past Picnic Area No. 1 and the park office. It ends at a parking lot beyond the gate on the main entrance road, a distance of approximately .5 mile.

Directions: From Wellsboro, Pa, Take US 6 northeast approximately 6 miles and turn left on Township Road 650. Travel a short distance and turn right on SR 4037. Begin at the dam just after entering the park. There is a parking lot on SR 4037 by the entrance turn-in.
