Nice easy trail. Wear boots if you're prone to twisted ankles, lots of roots. Beautiful lake views.

Interesting trail with many historic sites.

Hiked this trail halfway this past Sunday with friends. This is a beautiful trail bordering Lake Brandt on the northern shoreline. Wildlife was active with numerous birds, squirrels and some deer. It's fairly flat, with a couple hills in the middle. Pretty easy overall.

Easy walk, beautiful trail through Battleground Park, lots of history here also...easy to add on extra stops

Beautiful trail. It was quite narrow, so that when bikes approach you have to get off the tail and out of the way, for that reason it might only be good for dogs who are calm and used to being crowded.

I started at the Old Battleground trailhead, hiked all the way to Lake Brandt Marina, then I used the Wild Turkey Trail to turned around and back to the Old Battleground trailhead for a loop of total 7.3 miles. The Wild Turkey trail was built for mountain biking but I had a good workout for hiking. People on it were very courteous. I was totally enjoyed it.

Great kid-friendly hike. There was some more variety to the trail than I expected for an "easy" hike. Beautiful bio-diversity and everything from a low creek area with ferns to beautiful lake views and several types of forest with lush ground cover.

Great trail - very kid friendly

Great trail, for even waking up in the morning ...
I live in the neighborhood & have for 9 years. I never knew the full trail or many others close by before downloading this app ~ It's Great !

Awesome walk! Watch out for bicyclists, walkers and runners.

Excellent national treasure in our backyard! The roadway attracts a lot of walkers, runners and bicyclists. But the nature trails offer peaceful walks and history. Make sure to read the monuments.

Great hike! It's scenic because it runs along the lake. Bring your dog for some trail running. Just watch out for other walkers and runners.

Great for walking your dog. There is a dog park off the trail. Usually lots of people walking and running. It's also great practice for 5k training.

Nice easy trek. Lots of families walking.

Easy trek with great history. Stop in at the Visitor Center and view a few short programs to learn about the Revolutionary War battle that transpired at this location. After a day of walking, don't miss Ozzie's Ice Cream shop (intersection of Battleground and Old Battleground) for the best ice cream in Greensboro!
