The Bicaz Gorges belong to the Hăşmaş-Bicaz Gorges National Park (Parcul Naţional Hăşmaş-Cheile Bicazului). The main activities are hiking the park and lake, and boating on Lacu Roşu.
A mostly flat, scenic track marked by a red cross (4km, one hour) circles the lake. Another relatively easy trail, marked by a yellow triangle, circles back from Lacu Roşu to the Bicaz Gorges (3.2km, one hour), while other more demanding trails ascend the various peaks, all offering stunning views. A more challenging trail, marked by a blue stripe, runs from the southern end of the lake to Poiana Albă at 1468m (8km, two hours).
