Overview

This is a moderate one way trail in Paris Mountain State Park.

This trail goes by Reservoir #3, Buckhorn Lake, and Mountain Lake.

Getting Started

We actually used the upper parking lot and then took the northern Sulpher Springs trail to Kanuga, left off the loop around the lake and the took Pipsessewa trail back to the shorter Brissy Ridge trail back to the lot.

Our intention was to get in a two hour, fast paced hike for outdoor exercise. We accomplished that. It took us two hours and ran just under six miles. We got plenty of up and down with a peaceful walk on one side of the lake with great views of the mountains.elevation gain was almost 600’.

Taking Children

Great hike for kids with the lake as a draw. Lots of places to get off trail in the winter months.

Recommend going via hiking path ONLY to the right from the parking lot. The walking path (no bikes allowed) is very steep with my roots and switchbacks.
