134 – Squires Lake

Squires Lake has turned out to be one of our favorite County Parks. We hike their often, sometimes continuing on to Alger Alp, other times on to the beaver pond, and other times along the Ridge Trail (see Hike #27 – Squires Lake to Alger Alp, Hike #32 – Squires Lake Park and Hike #14 – Alger Alp). We like Squires Lake Park because it has a different feel than most of our county parks. Rather than big fields of carefully manicured lawns, picnic tables and shelters, this park is but a steep trail through a forest to a sweet little lake. Today we hiked up to the lake with our fishing gear.

I’m reeling in a very tiny fish. Although the locals say there are some nice trout in Squires Lake, this one was definitely not a keeper.

Whether hiking out of the park with a stringer full of fish or not, Squires Lake is a beautiful place to spend an afternoon!
