This easy and short loop leads all the way around Lake Wintergreen and provides views of West Rock. Additionally, it traverses scenic, exposed rocks and roots on the Red/White Trail
This trail begins at the Lake Wintergreen parking area in West Rock Ridge State Park following the White Trail
. This section of the trail is pretty flat, wide, and is mostly covered in pine needles. This part of the loop includes the first really good views of the lake.
The loop then turns off of the White Trail
and onto the Red/White Trail
. This part of the loop narrows and traverses some large, exposed rocks which are scenic but can also be challenging. Because of this, the Red Trail
is recommended for a slightly easier hike. The trail then goes over a small bridge above a dam and continues on a small dike. It then merges back into the Red Trail
and continues to its terminus at the Lake Wintergreen parking area.
