Sleeping Lion Trail

Seen from the south, Mount Wellington, on the eastern shore of Otsego Lake, is said to resemble a sleeping lion. The loop trail that climbs it from Glimmerglass State Park is about 2.5 miles long, marked with orange paint blazes. This trail offers a lovely forested walk through magestic white pines, hemlocks and hardwoods. A good trail for snowshoeing. The park offers cross-country ski trails and other recreational facilities. An entrance fee may apply.
