excellent workout
This is probably one of the hardest hikes in Harriman State Park.  That being said, it's quite a great workout for the legs and a good hike to do on a weekday, when the crowds dissipate. I did this hike on Monday afternoon and had the trail pretty much to myself.  Great views from Hill Torne Sebago, Seven Hills, Racoon Brook.  Since it was in the high 60s today, I thought perhaps I might see a rattler sunning himself on one of the ledges. Nope.  The blueberry bushes have turned a bright red foliage, and the scrub oak on top of the hills are a bright orange.  Enjoy!

Correct, no swimming in Pine Meadow Lake

As described, the hike does not quite reach the lake.  Regardless, swimming in Pine Meadow Lake (or any other lake in the park unless officially so designated and when a lifeguard is present) is not allowed."
