Relatively new trail with swinging bridges. Lost Creek trail follows shoreline of Lake and offers several nice views. Ends at scenic overlook perfect for the been there, done that photo. Return on paved Marble Plains Trail (1.1 mi.). Can add in MP Loop (1.2 mi.) which starts and ends at overlook.

Very nice hike with beautiful lake views, suspension bridges and enough up and down ravines for a workout. Missed one sharp turn on the trail and we weren't the only ones. If you miss the turn you will be on pavement. Backtrack a short distance and pick up the trail going right down a ravine. We combined this with the Marble trail for a very nice hike just under 4 miles total.

Trails were nice but not well marked. I got lost quiet a few times and I'm an advanced hiker.

Moderate trail. Two nice swinging bridges make enjoyable hike. Overlook closer to two miles down the trail. Occasionally see deer near the trail. Lakeshore trail begins at overlook but is not as well maintained. Trailhead at visitors center parking lot. Good half-day hike at Tim's Ford State Park near Winchester TN.

Nice trail for those taking children. Easy to follow path alongside lake with plenty of diversions. Enjoyed the swinging bridges. Took this trail in the fall and only saw a few others. The up and down trail did not seem very taxing, even for children , but seemed longer than the distance posted. Got off the path for some of the best spots and scenery. Did not see the creek , I guess the name fits.

Went with a friend and seven kids ages 4 - 13 and we all had a good time. Next time we will add in the 1.2 mile Marble Plains loop.
