A pretty walk through the woods. The trail is well marked and not too crowded early in the morning.

Great trail along the lake.

Nice trail, easy, some paths that cut and take you onto main road iffin you do not know the route!

This is one of our regular spots, thankfully it stays fairly quiet on the trails and in the fields.bLove to bring my dogs here.

Great for a nice liesure walk. Any level, any age can enjoy the beauty.

Pretty basic woodsy hike from the Corridor Trail parking area on Hauser Rd. to the Yadkin River where it intersects with the Bean Shoals Canal Trail. Encountered a beautiful green snake and a sizable black rat snake on this trail.

Took the family for a hike on this wonderful trail today. Weather was perfect - no sun glasses needed as the natural canopy kept the sun from zapping us. Had to move over about four times to allow cyclists through. It took us an hour and 15 minutes to complete. We didn’t see any snakes this time. Be careful in some places that have roots. Nice easy to moderate trail!! Looking forward to doing in again in the near future.

Not bad for a quick hike close to town. The few climbs will get your heart rate up.

good trail...I usually hit this twice a year when I do the Greensboro trails tour...a but "rooty" in some areas but all in all good "flowy" trail...got some good pump sections that you can really get ripping on...

A solid little track. As I’ve upped my hike totals, I am less likely to give 4s and 5s. This trail was wide, soft and well-marked. Worth doing once, but not enough diversity to drive 30 minutes or more to trek again. Excellent facilities, a nice waterfront and more to do than simply jaunt through the woods.

My new favorite trail. Has everything - lake view, deep shade for hot days, berms, pump parts, all single track, technical challenges but not impossible, well groomed. Ride up on green way to Wild Turkey trail for more miles of single track. Awesome for Mtn biking!

Great path for biking, not busy at all, would definitely go back.

Definitely a moderate trail; lots of flat straight-aways with the occasional steep incline in-between, great place to go for a jog. Wonderful scenery and great views just yards away from Lake Brandt. There was enough tree coverage overhead that even though it was raining, I barely felt it.

I, personally, walk my dogs off-leash on this trail, for the same reasons I'm sure others do-- it is a bit less trafficked than other surrounding trails, and biking is not allowed here. I can speak for myself in that, I've given my dogs off-leash privileges because I've taken the appropriate measures to train them in proper hiking etiquette, both on and off leash. I'm well aware this is against leash laws, but my dogs have never, ever given me a reason to take this privilege away from them. If they did, they certainly wouldn't be off leash.

Generally, people are very kind and accepting about this here, despite the previous review and general sentiment on other surrounding trails. Any negative encounters I've had are almost always dogs mirroring their owners; that is, if you immediately tense up and exhibit reactionary, anxious (and often rude) behavior, so will your animal. If you calmly call out and politely ask me to leash my dog for the moment we cross paths, I'm more than happy to respectfully oblige.

There's plenty of trail around for everybody to share, in all capacities. Mutual respect goes a very long way.

Awesome loop trail you can also mountain bike on.

Nice view of the lake and close to the modern world. Trail a little rough and bumpy...Not a beginner trail.
.loved it!

Nice quick hike a couple miles from my house. Moderate hills. Good little workout with my Doxie.

Would be beautiful in the late spring , summer and Fall. Good for dogs and older kids.

Loved the trail ~ DID NOT LOVE the fellow hikers who had their dogs off-leash. We have a leash law in Guilford County, however you would not know it hiking this trail! What are these people thinking? I was hiking with my dog, who is CGC certified, and felt very uncomfortable when we met 6 dog owners, all different and not together, with their dogs off- leash. This is against the law!! Will not hike this trail again!

lots of wildlife, tons of turtles all sunbathing on logs, blue herons walking on the water edge, and toads hopping around in the forest.

We started at battleground trail head. I liked starting here and taking a break at the marina (bathroom and vending machines are there) We are new to trails and found this one pretty easy, there were maybe two hills that were tough. Fun for our dogs too!

Great trail once you get off the pavement. Lots of American Beech, my favorite tree.

Very good mixed terrain for hiking. Mountain Bikers were very friendly and gave ample warning of their presence. Looking forward to hiking it again during the summer.

An easy, pretty hike, but not a very well-known one. I did this one solo when I wanted some isolation, and I literally saw no one else on the whole loop. I'd like to come back with my dog and take her to the dog park nearby before we hike.

Super little loop with good elevation to keep the heart pumping. Plenty of offshoots if you decide to try a diversion.

Another pretty stroll around the grounds, with many beautiful roses still blooming in the gardens. I enjoyed a mild November evening walk.

Cool easy trail to hike or run. Very nice this time of year.

Done this trail 100 plus times..great for hiking or running..very easy..a couple of small hills..just wish Greensboro could afford to put trash cans at least at the trail ends..i wouldn't expect the highly motivated city employees to empty them(maybe the City could contract that out..like mowing city owned grass)..but that would be nice.

This is one of my favorite local places to get in a quick walk. In particular, I love exploring the formal garden near the mansion/museum, as well as taking the path around the beautiful meadow.

Challenging at times. Very clean and well kept. Highly recommend it.
