This is a popular area in a campground. That being said, in the winter it is a great area for a relaxing hike. Although the parking lot was full, we encountered only a couple people during our hike. This is a popular place for mountain biking. There are several creek crossings affording a chance to filter out some water. These creeks are shallow in most areas, so bring something to scoop with. The first third of the trail is actually a road. This is the only way in during the off-season, and is very easy. There are also a few small fields along the trail perfect for a hammock hang, tarp shelter, or just a good ol cup of coffee. Overall, a short and sweet hike.

I love the history of this trail. Only had enough time to cover four miles before I had to turn around. I would rate it as moderate but definitely broke a sweat on a cool day. Not a lot of views because of trees but I want to go back in the spring when the mountain laurel are in full bloom!

We enjoyed this trail on Sunday! Hiked to lake Powhatan, even though it's more of a pond, it's beautiful and has some good fishing and this section below the lake is hatchery supported all the way down until you reach the arboretum where there is no fishing. You can make this hike as short or as long as you like. Heavily trafficked area but other than that we enjoyed it and will be going again soon!

Pleasant hike, very peaceful.

This is a very nice, clear, graveled trail. Some gradual elevations. Very few people using it, perhaps because we went on a Thursday morning/afternoon. Enjoyed this with my Mastiff.

Very pretty forest views. I included this trail with my visit to the NC Arboretum.

Nice hike through the trees with some pretty creek views.

Not much for views but a nice hike

Great for trail running
