Adjacent to Poison Spring State Forest, this park lies on the shore of White Oak Lake, 2,765 timber-filled acres for bass, crappie, catfish, and bream fishing. Rich in wildlife, the park offers regular sightings of great blue heron, egret, osprey, and green heron, and in winter, bald eagles. Park facilities include 45 campsites (41 Class B and four Tent sites); a store with supplies, bait and gifts (open throughout the year); marina with boat rentals; launch ramp; barrier-free fishing pier; standard pavilion; picnic sites; hiking trails, almost 10 miles of mountain bike trails and a playground. The visitor center includes exhibits and a CD interactive program and offers bicycle rentals.
Awesome! This is part of a series of trails at White Oak Lake State Park, this is a very well maintained park with a terrific staff! The trails are heavily wooded and clearly marked, nothing too hard but very peaceful and amazingly secluded for being in the middle of a popular lake! Most people just fish, not many hike these awesome trails!
This trail is part of a state park and actually is home to three differnet trails (uploaded trail head picture) the Costal is 3, Fern is 10 mile and Beech is 3. Required to check in at office, but there is,no charge. Entire trail is located at White Oak Lake State Park.
Its a really well maintained park, and the people in the visitor center were fantastic . The trail is well marked and well maintained. The trail is shaded all the way, and the views of the lake were mostly through the trees. I'm not a biker, but it looks like a great mountain bike trail.
The park says the trail is 9.8 miles, but I only got to 8.9 on GPS.
