trail locations for Huntersville, North Carolina

This is part of the extensive Latta Plantation Nature Preserve trail system. Parking next to the nature center at the entrance, I hiked the Hill, Cove and Split Rock Trails for just over five miles. The Hill Trail is wide and is often shared with horses from the equestrian center. The Cove Trail loops through the woods, getting you close to the lake in several places. The trail is filled with small rocks. I had to be careful with all the leaves on the ground. The split Rock Trail also gets you close to the water, and is not nearly as rocky. I really enjoyed the combination of trails on a beautiful fall day.

A short and easy loop, with wonderful views as it follows along the edge of the lake for much of the distance. It is very family and dog-friendly, and is easy to combine with many other trails at the Latta Plantation Nature Preserve.

Nice walk on a narrow dirt trail. Stay aware of bikers--you have to step off trail.

My son and I enjoyed this trail on Mother's Day. It was fun for us both!

It was a fun easy trail. Good for days when you don't have a lot of time to hike but just want to get out in nature for a bit.

Great for trail running!!

It was fun! Good hike for a beginner, not to challenging and not to easy. There are great views of the the water with a couple of access points. It is still winter so not a lot of foliage, so more of a spring thru fall if you want more to look at.

Nice trail for year round hiking.

Each time I visit this trail I see something new. The trail is quiet most week days if you steer clear of the north side near the lake. Accessibility to other park trails, nature center and activities is excellent!

Been hanging out at this park for years. Participating in every activity possible in one way or the other and they have them all. The trails are average but the park makes up for it. Worth the trip if your a local.
