Nice woods. The "open" part of the trail had no air moving and it was a hot day. This trail did not go down to the lake at all but the lake is not nice at this end anyway.
I set out to bike it but had a malfunction and had to push it back. I ended up walking this easy loop. This trail is accessed from the North side of the lake off Farys Mill Road. The lake at this end is ugly and I fully understand why the rangers wanted their headquarters at the beautiful southern end. More about Loop One, it spends about half it's life in the woods and half out in the open. The woods are nice. The open part is through seven foot wild flowers and a lot of butterflies. This trail is multi-use and there was a lot of horse poo and mountain bike tracks to prove it.
