The Rec Path begins from the parking lot along the road and proceeds along between wood and meadow. It is flat, accessible, and popular.
From the Rec Path, the Allen Hill Trail ascends rapidly and stays along the water. Of moderate difficulty, it offers the most dramatic views of the water, and ends back at the Rec Path on the beach. Clark Trail is relatively short; it parallels the Rec Path and stays close to the water. It is sometimes muddy.
There is a picnic area and small boat access near the trailhead. Dogs must be leashed. The Rec Path is wheelchair accessible.
The Nature Conservancy assisted with conservation of 93 acres, which includes 6,000 feet of lake frontage.
Foremost among the nearby tourist attractions is the Shelburne Museum.
From Route 7, turn east onto Bay Road. Go under the railroad tracks and look for the trailhead on your right, just past the boat access.
