Packer Lake

Home base for all of our hikes. This year was notable for the bird watching. I’ve never seen a Bald Eagle in the wild before so it was a lot of fun to chase one around the lake on a rowboat.

Long Lake

Same area as the Mount Elwell hike only a different set of trails. After going to Deer Lake we opted for a less-strenous hike the following day.

Frazier Falls

A short paved hike similar to Sand Pond which is perfect for kids. Especially since there’s a bridge to cross and a waterfall at the end.

Deer Lake

Deer Lake is a longer hike that we wait on until after we’ve acclimated to the altitude. It’s much higher than Saxonia and has a different view of the mountains that we can see from Sand Pond.

Sand Pond

Not exactly a hike like Saxonia. Sandpond is an interpretive trail and boardwalk through a former beaver pond. It’s great for kids and has some nice views.
