On a 68 degree January day, had to get out to hike, so took the Blue Jay Point part of the MST from the county park to the west to Six Forks Road and back. Saw a huge deer that bounded right in front of me because I was blocking his entry to the woods from the point. Also many boaters were out on the lake taking advantage of the weather. Nice winter hike in the woods because you get a great view of the lake through the trees. Some good ups and downs so it's not too boring, but a great hike that's convenient if you have cabin fever.
A great short trail, but there are ways to make it a bit longer by following other trails nearby. Definitely wear hiking shoes and know it has a lot of roots.
Beautiful along the lake. Basically went to each end of lake trail and back for about 7.25 miles total.
