Cupsuptic Lake Trail

Starting and ending in the heart of Cupsuptic Lake Park and Campground, the Cupsuptic Lake trail is a 0.5-mile hike with great views of Cupsuptic Lake. Hikers feel they are deep in the woods despite being less than a 0.5 miles from the campground.

The Cupsuptic Lake Trail is a very short trail that allows hikers to immerse themselves in the woods, despite the trail's proximity to the Cupsuptic Lake Park and Campground. The trail includes narrow bog bridging, which makes some sections moderately difficult. Interactive signs are placed strategically around the loop, giving the hiker context for both the forest and wildlife that surrounds them. 

The trail winds through woodland, bogs, and shorefront on Cupsuptic Lake.  The last 500-feet of the trail is comprised of a 6-foot wide pathway with a stone dust surface. This path leads to a large viewing platform which is great for bird watching and possibly spotting more wetland wildlife. Educational signs are placed along the stone dust path identifying local flora and fauna that hikers can be on the lookout for while on the trail.
