I run this trail 5-6 days a week. It has some hills and can be difficult at times. I love it so much because the view of the lake is beautiful, I enjoy seeing the wildlife (If you get there early enough, I have seen lots of deer), and ifs quiet for the most part. I just wish people paid attention to the traffic pattern of the trail. That only really bothers me during the warmer months when more people are at the park.

Nice double track that is mostly flat. Usually well maintained and not very crowded during the week

A very well maintained seven mile loop around a beautiful lake not far from downtown Winston-Salem. It is a great trail for a morning workout, with wonderful water views all the way.

Well kept and easy enough for a beginner like me to finish it even with sore feet.
