We moved to the area recently from North GA, felt just like up there hardly and people on a Sat afternoon. If you want a longer hike- keep going to the nature center. There is water, restrooms, and an awesome "zoo" to walk. Our total distance was 8.2 miles with 410 elevation gain out and back. It is well shaded the whole way. This will be our new weekend hike!
Nice and hilly. A little unkept in certain areas. Really pretty views of the lake from the trail.
This trail is a lot longer than .8 miles. After 3.4 miles it connects with Dauset Trails. At that point you can turn around and head back to your vehicle or continue and come out eventually at the Dauset trail head. Beautiful trail, well marked. Park in the field before the first entrance to the park for the trail head. Entrance is at the tree line.
I'm not sure why the description above says it is a 0.8 mile out and back trail. Maybe that is old information or maybe they are only referring to the section within the park boundaries. In truth This is a 3.5 mile hiking and biking trial that connects to the trail system at Dauset Trails. It is a very nice ride and an relatively easy family-friendly hike. There are beautiful lake views with some very nice bridges. If hiking I might suggest leaving one vehicle at Indian Springs and one at Dauset Trails, but of course, that won't work if you are by yourself. Besides, on the trip back you will notice a lot of things you missed on the trip out, and seven easy miles aren't that great a challenge, but are well worth it.
Awesome trail, fast and flows well, gets the heart pumping to go back, love it my home trail.
Great hardwood forest trail.
Visited some family RVing down at Indian Springs for the day. Great campsites, and not nearly as hot as I expected it to be. It was beautiful and shady, and our site 81 is directly on a decent sized lake. They have a neat little civil war era cemetery, a playground and put-put course for the kids, and hiking trails. Also, downtown Flovilla is nearby. I use the term downtown loosely because it is really a quaint village with cute shoppes that are nice to walk through. We usually head to the mountains to camp, but it was nice to see this park within an hour of the city.
This trail starts at the state park and connects with Daucet Trail. It's about 8 miles there and back. Gorgeous views along the lake. It said that it was primarily for biking, but I didn't see any bikes - just hikers.
Indian Spring was a good hike for the dog once we distanced ourselves from the more populated loop trail. The loop was good, too, though. This park has an interesting history.
Very short loop trail.
