Cowan's Gap Lakeside Trail Reviews

Cowan's Gap is a beautiful lake nestled in the mountains that great for a summer afternoon! We did this hike with our whole family, including three toddlers, and every one enjoyed it! It gives great views of the lake from every angle and the kids loved being in nature and looking for fish! It was a quick hike that we followed up with a picnic and some swimming at the beach. It's a great place to spend the day with friends and family!
