You are likely to see deer, turtles, birds, and other small wildlife on your hike up to the overlook. Once there, the view of the Pee Dee river and Lake Tillery are amazing. It is an easy hike each way, with the exception of the last part leading to the overlook, which can be slippery.
Never been a huge fan of trails that you can drive to the top of. The view from the parking lot is great, but the trail doesn't offer anything special.
Nice place to hike . We will be back soon.
I loved this trail. I went with my kids, we really enjoyed it. For our first trail it was a little tough, we definitely got a great workout! We will come again as there are several trails.
Good trail, very nice. Only problem with me was when it rained on us. Other than that, it was great
The hike was definitely moderate in activity level, a few very steep paths near the top. Really love the views.
Very much enjoyed our time out there. Took my fiancé and our son and absolutely enjoyed the hike and scenery. Def recommend.
Excellent view at the top, myself and my wife go several times a year, the trail actually to the top is on the should of the road, which I feel is alittle dangerous and alot of rocks to slips on so watch your footing, we use hiking sticks. I have also kayaked the lake which is very nice , all the way around, I like the dam area the best and sound is most relaxing of the rushing water. Lots of birds, but I yet to see a deer.

Great place hike!
Great signage. Bathrooms and picnic area at top of the trail and mountain.
We hiked up this trail from Sugarloaf and with several miles under our belt. It was a little hard for us since we were tired, but well worth the push. This is not a view you usually get in NC unless you are in the western mountains. If you're looking for a workout, or your knees hate downward inclines, I suggest coming up this trail rather than going down. Short story long, this is a great moderately difficult trail.
It was a beautiful day for a hike. So quiet up there. Our family had a great time, set up a hammock along the way to chillax, the dogs had great walks, and we never realized this was just a short drive from home!- A great staycation over spring break.
Great for a nice day hike or weekend camping. Trails are kept nice and clear with beautiful views. The trail leading to the damn is a great trail by the lake. Dogs are welcome just have to be on a leash. Overall very nice park to play and explore!
My family went camping here throughout my childhood. The trails are clean and diverse with slight elevations and mountain and lake views. This is the place that got me interested in hiking.
A very nice trail with a rewarding view at the top. Trail isn't really strenuous but you can drive to the top so there will be plenty of people at the top when you get there.
Very pretty! Lovely views. We hiked the short loop near the parking area, and it was both easy and challenging enough for young children to have a safe and enjoyable time.
