    Trails

    • Frank Gantz, Red
      Most Difficult 2.99 miles
      Frank Gantz Trail: 3.2 miles, red blaze, difficult hiking\r\nFrank Gantz Trail connects to Tobyhanna at Lakeside Trail and to Gouldsboro in the south day use parking lot. Children should not hike this trail without adult supervision. Special care is needed to cross PA Route 4013 (Tobyhanna Road). This is a very demanding trail with many areas where ‘rock hopping’ is necessary. Good hiking boots are essential to a pleasant and safe hike. Allow at least three hours for a round trip.\r\n\r\n
    • Yellow
      More Difficult 3.24 miles
      Yellow Trail: 3.3 miles, yellow blaze, difficult hiking\r\nIt is a 6.6-mile walk from the trailhead on Lakeside Trail to PA 196 and back. Allow three hours for this trip. Yellow Trail is a very demanding hike and should not be attempted without the proper hiking footwear. An adult should accompany children and no one should hike the trail alone. Be prepared to ‘rock hop’ and cross a few minor wet areas. This trail follows the border of the Black Bear and Bender Swamps Natural Area and passes through several other wetlands and boulder fields created by the last glacial period.
    • Lakeside, Blue
      Easiest 5.04 miles
      Lakeside Trail: 5.1 miles, blue blaze, easy hiking\r\nThis improved trail has a hardened base for hiking and bicycling in summer and cross-country skiing and snowmobiling in winter. Although not recommended for people with disabilities, wheelchair users have completed the trail. Part of the trail is on the paved road. Allow at least 2.5 hours to complete the entire trail around Tobyhanna Lake.
