Interpretive Trail Loop is a 3.6 mile loop trail located near Huddleston, Virginia that features a river and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, trail running, and camping and is best used from March until November.
I parked at the visitor center and started out on this trail, combining it with Striper Cove and Turkey Foot for a very nice three mile loop. There are beautiful views of the lake from the wooded trail. I was able to catch some of the last fall color in the trees on a gorgeous late fall day.
A very nice state park with several well maintained trails...most of which have pretty views of the large lake.
Nice elevation changes well maintained and shaded walk in the woods. Great views of Smith Mountain Lake
My wife loved Smith Mountain Lake. Out of the way, but very scenic and nice trail around the lake.
