    Nate Stidham reviewed Carter Caves Cross Country Trail

    2 months ago

    Great trail. Mostly easy, with some moderate uphill sections. A few places were not marked very well, and there were a few places where unmarked trails branch off of the main trail. My advice- stay the course and don't make a turn if you're not sure. Although I did walk some of these trails for a bit to see where they went, then doubled back. You might be able to get lost if you go too far. Of course a good walking stick is recommended for the spider webs that you will encounter. Markers say to allow 6 hours for this trail, but it's easily done in much less if you're a frequent hiker. Also, Shangri-la arch is collapsing so be careful in this area. There are arrows painted on the rocks to help guide you, just beware if you travel this area especially after heavy rain, there may be falling or loose rocks.

    Great trip to a special place on the lake. allow yourself 2-2.5 hours round trip. Absolutely stunning scenery along the way and several water features as well.

    Great 3mi loop in Grayson Lake State Park. Trail head is by the basketball court near the campground entrance. Thankfully they put up a new trailhead sign! Loop is well marked and well maintained. A nice walking stick is recommended as you'll encounter numerous spider webs across the trail, especially if you're the first one out that day. Follow the orange blaze markers to stay on the trail. The falls are really worth the hike, especially after a good rain. The first "half" of the trail(up to the falls) is a little boring. Some nice wildlife sightings occasionally, but nothing special. After passing the falls though, the trail follows the lake closely and you get some wonderful views of the lake and the rock cliffs surrounding it.

    Nice moderate trail. The skylift is the best way to get to the top of the natural bridge. I walked and due to the one-lane nature of the climb to the top it was a long wait. Was really busy even on a Thursday. If you don't want to ride the lift, I suggest the OG trail to battleship rock trail, then branch off to the laurel ridge trail(by the devils gulch). Will take you up to the top of the natural bridge without having to pass the one lane stairs.

    Fun trail with great views of the lake and beautiful falls. Very well marked trail, except for the trailhead sign. It shows an arrow left for the trail leading to the campground and an arrow right for the Lick falls trail and also has a triangle (which I assume is meant as an arrow pointing forward) for the "loop" trail. Follow the triangle forward and you will quickly see the orange trail markers. If you go to the right you will come to the golf course. The trail was well maintained and clean. Overall a very enjoyable trail and the falls are a great place to stop for a break and eat.
