Description

The Lake Glensevern Trail joins the trails to the northwest with the Rock of Gibraltar Trail near the shore. It travels through a rich spruce forest with a thick, mossy forest floor. The trail crosses several small bridges and boardwalks.

The trail is an old carriage road that used to carry the Roosevelts and their guests to the shores of Lake Glensevern. On the shore is an interpretive sign that explains how it was once the site of a teahouse and a bridge that crossed the lake.

On our last visit to the campground we met a man who's face was all bloody. He had been attacked by a nesting hawk near the junction of the Lake Glensevern Trail and the Rock of Gibraltar Trail. Be cautious during raptor breeding season.
