Its steep wooded slopes, valleys, scenic vistas, small lakes, spring flowering trees and spectacular fall foliage colors add to this park’s exceptional beauty. Durand Eastman Park has eight shelters and one enclosed lodge for rent, a playground and a golf course.

Trails

Before heading out to Durand Eastman Park print the map. The color coded hiking trails and additional details will keep you on the right track.

The Durand Lake Trail is a 1.2 mile walk that has a very strong wilderness feel to it. There are sections of corduroy (log paths) along the southern part of the trail.

The Trott Lake Trail is a .5 mile walk over small rolling hills. Along the path you will see the area that used to be Dr. Henry S. Durand’s old campground where there are also unusual trees which are labeled.

The Eastman Lake Trail is a 1.5 mile walk that is spectacular for any season. This trail follows along the lake where you can see waterfowl and warblers, especially during migration seasons.
