Shenipsit Lake is a 1.8 mile section of the blue blaze Shenipsit Trail from Rt. 74 to Shenipsit Lake Rd.  The largely follows an old rail bed that is within sight of the water, but never gets close.  There is one opportunity on a short side trail to reach the water’s edge about halfway down the trail.  The trail is flat and easy walking with a couple bridge crossings over small streams.

Previous Section: Walker Reservoir

Next Section: 1 mile road walk along Shenipsit Lake Rd
