Beautiful walk around lake leatherwood lake. The wildlife is abundant here and the views are amazing. The hand hewn, and hand set bridge across the lake is worth the walk. There are now several geocaches in the loop so make sure and look for those as well.

Great trail. Sometimes the markers aren't as clear we took a detour down to the soccer fields. It's beautiful with lots to see.

great trail! awesome dam crossing! beautiful waters near the trail! connects to other trails so you can make your hike longer if you wish. we started at the trailhead near the boat ramp area that is not well marked.

I hiked this trail with my daughter. The dam/bridge made the hike worthwhile. The lake is beautiful, and there weren't many people on the trail. The difficulty was easy/moderate.

If you go down to the office by the boat dock, you can pick up a trail map.

Took my 9 and 5 year old on the Leatherwood loop (which went by a different name on all signs). Trails were clear of limbs/debris and we had a good hike. Ran into a copperhead on the end of the trail that runs through the creek bed, but other than that, no issues.

Not a bad little trail. Some hills, watch out for loose rocks may roll an ankle. Really cool dam.
