Views of a beautiful hardwood and hemlock forest amid shale cliffs and a man-made dam and spillway.

This easy 1.5 mile loop trail begins from the picnic area at the end of the park road alongside Treman Lake. Crossing over a footbridge and traveling through a marsh habitat, the trail crosses the scenic stone bridge and continues along the lake's shoreline. Steps ascend to an overlook of the lake. A second set of steps offers another perspective of the lake, this time sights of man-made and natural stone wonders. The trail continues around the boundary of the lake offering an up close look at native cattails, a stone dam and a large outcropping. The trail loops back to the picnic and parking areas.
