Asphalt path. Maintained very well. We took a jogging stroller and had no issues.

Very short asphalt trail to a trio of swinging benches. Might be wheelchair accessible, but it gets steep at the end. Trees block any real view of Lake Lanier, especially in the summer. Does connect with the more substantial Terrapin Cove Trail, but hiking only this trail is only a good option if you really do not want to hike.

Short rolling out-and-back along Lake Lanier. Has a few hills, but on the easy side of moderate due to the length. Marked with red rectangular metal markers. No real outstanding features, but still the best hike at Don Carter State Park.

Short walk beside the river and passing some campgrounds. I wouldn't do this again, not really much to see here.

Short trail from the visitors center that has about 3 swings and also connects to Terrapin Cove Trail. Paved and accessible for wheel chairs.

Easy trail, paved and maintained. Loved the little side trail that lead to a bench near a small creek.
