The four-mile loop, Moreau Lake and Overlook Trail also circles the lakes but includes some steep climbs to reach the viewpoint over the lake.

Fishing is popular at the lakes, and there is excellent fishing for both bass and rainbow trout. During the winter, ice fishing is allowed, and the park runs children’s ice fishing clinics to teach them how to cut the ice and fish.

In the town of Moreau, pay a visit to Grant Cottage State Historic Site, an Adirondack mountain cottage with a spectacular view. The cottage was the final home of the 18th US President, Ulysses S. Grant before he died, and now the cottage is open to the public. The cottage has changed little and is a good example of 19th-century living, with period furniture and fittings. Visitors are encouraged to explore the free grounds, but there is a charge to enter the cottage.
Glens Falls is home to the Hyde Collection Historic House and Art Museum. The art is displayed in five separate gallery spaces covering modern and contemporary art, along with Old Masters and 19th century European and American artwork. The museum opened in 1963, thanks to Charlotte Pruyn Hyde and now holds works from many famous artists, including Rembrandt, Picasso, Sam Gilliam and many more.
A little further past Glens Falls is the town of Lake George, where you’ll find the House of Frankenstein Wax Museum. More of a haunted house than a museum, it is none the less fun for all the family, so long as you don’t mind a bit of a fright! The wax models here are not stationary and lifeless, but move to strike terror into every visitor! The kids will love it!
