good trail nice for riding. or a good run.
If you're looking for ups and downs this isn't your trail. This is, for the most part, a very easy, very level packed gravel lakeside walk. It winds through what use to be a camp ground that was closed in the early to mid 1980's. There's picnic tables all along the shoreline, abandoned restroom facilities, and old signage. It would be amazing if one day the park decided to re activate some of these old camp sites as 'backpack in only' grounds since they offer some of the absolute best lake views in the park. I wouldn't recommend this for mountain biking, by the time you realize you're bored to tears the loop will be about done.
It was great hiking. Very easy and wide enough to enjoy different activities. Not crowded, so it is definitely good for family.
pretty easy took my 3 yr old with me of course he may have walked a whole 1 mile lol nice view of lake and theres you are hear signs about every half mile there are benches and picnic tables to sit at and there are a few bridges.
to Kim below saying its poorly marked must not have paid attention there are blue lines on trees arrow signs marking the way and the you are here signs you have to be blind not to see them
Hiked this trail for the first time and really enjoyed the lake views and wide trail path. I wish the side trails were marked so we could try a new path without fear of taking a wrong turn. Poorly marked for a fee pay GA state park.
Just a great trail worth the parking fee. Awesome views of the lake with a great work out.
Good trail. Wide and well maintained. Several trails off of the main trail to explore. Good lake views. My dogs love it here.
This is a great trail! It's part of a bigger campground that has been closed for sometime. Many use the trail for Mountain Bikes it's a wide main trail with several smaller trails. Great trail for your dogs please respect other hikers and bikers keep pets on a leash and please pick up after your dog. This trail and campground will soon be under stewardship of 3 Boy Scout Districts Appalachian Trail, Foothills, Silver Comet the goal is to preserve and maintaining the trail and show the beauty of Red Top Mountain State Park.
Great 2 hour hike to bring the dogs on. Very flat, more like just walking thru the woods. Trail follows the water's edge which is awesome to run down and take a dip or let the dogs cool off.
Great trail for exercise and scenery! We love it! Only one encounter which was frightening is when a couple near the lake had their Pit Bull off of his leash, and he charged up the hill to growl at my daughter and me as we were walking the trail. I stood totally still and told them to get their dog now! They were slow doing this but finally got their dog! I love all animals, but this was scary!!
