First time here today. We hiked the white trail (1.8 miles) & the blue trail (.7 miles) in a hour & 22 min. Great trail system, well marked and easy to follow. The trails had lots of roots and other things to step over/around. The scenery was beautiful, walking near High Point Lake was a pleasure. We saw plenty of birds, squirrels, ducks and geese. We look forward to coming back to the piedmont enviromental center to hike the rest of the trails & to walk the bicentennial greenway.

I found a digital copy of the trail maps here: (I tried to add it to the photos, but don't think it worked)

Easy access and the lovey rest area are bonuses. The1.9 mile loop was a little harder than we expected, with lots of rocks and roots making the path treacherous in places. Plenty of places for breaks, and an abundance of shade helped. If you have ankle or knee problems, this might not be the path for you, but if you want a good short hike and don't mind uneven terrain, it's worth a go.

Lovely trails and many to choose from! There were noises that sounded like gunshots, however.
