The lake, with its turquoise hue and glacial backdrop, is by far the area's most popular destination. Summer offers iconic photography, lake shore strolls, hiking, climbing, canoeing and horseback riding. Winter offers Nordic skiing, snowshoeing and skating in a magical, snowy wonderland. Tips: The lake is ice-free by mid-June. From November through April enjoy a designated snowshoe trail, or walk the Lakeshore Trail on the right for a spectacular winter experience.
