  • My husband and I enjoy hiking and wanted to try out Paris Mountain State Park while we stayed in the area. We have a 1 1/2 year old so we opted for the Lake Placid loop. This trail is super easy and d...  more »
  • The day we visited Paris Mountain State Park it was really chilly so we only did the loop around Lake Placid, which was just beautiful! We took a drive through the other parts of the park & the views ...  more »
  • I just returned from a hike with my dog at Paris Mountain State Park. 70 degree weather outside and a day off from work was the perfect day for what I was hoping would be the perfect adventure. The pa...  more »

  • Great place for a picnic, a get together, a hike or a bike ride. The staff is friendly and eager to help. No bikes on Saturdays. Most bikers are great about sharing the trail with families but some.. just be alert. Great trails for biking especially being so close to downtown. Camp sites are clean and we'll kept. Firewood is available with a donation. The rustic sites are also great. The upper lake, at the rustic sites, is clean and peaceful. It is perfect for a relaxing swim. I recommend grabbing a waterproof map from the info center for a few dollars. There are so many things I missed, prior to having the map. Paris Mountain is wonderful!
  • Great trails for being so close to town. Sometimes it gets pretty crowded so I recommend going before 6am. Makes for good sunrise viewing and hardly see anybody else. I like this place a lot for running and not so much biking. It's pretty Rocky but if that is your thing go for it. They have a small playground which is good for little guys. My next adventure will be skateboarding down the road.
  • Be aware there's an admission price of $5 per person. We found this place online and decided to visit on the fly, but the website doesn't make the admission obvious. Beautiful scenery, but it's poorly signed. The website shows waterfalls but there was no mention of them or signs for them inside the park. The lake is lovely.
  • We had a nice hike around the lake with the kids. We took a shorter easy trail, but there were longer trails with harder ratings available as well. We saw paddle board and canoes available, but we are not quite in the right season for that.
  • 9/10 don't get the feeling I'm going to be murdered. A good time and pretty park. Good variety of trails from "am I sleep walking?" to "please indulge me in the sweet release of death *tumbles down hill into ravine*"
