This is our favorite hike in Fahnestock. It has so much variety. The hike passes by 3 lakes, all of which are great for swimming dogs. The hike also parallels a stream a ways. Part of this hike is wooded, and part of it goes through fields. Sometimes some of the fields have fenced areas with livestock in them. The hike also passes a therapeutic riding facility with a beautiful barn. The hike can be buggy in the summer, but on the other hand, it makes a perfect summer hike due to the lakes.
