There are dozens of awesome trails here. All Trails doesn't show all of them. Get on LBL's website and get the map. I've posted a picture on here of my map.

Great trail, I logged it as 4.8 miles, not sure about the disparity with AllTrails. Beautiful forest with dogwood and redbud blooms, and of course the serenity of Honker Bay.

Trail is littered with trash. Downed trees and washed out portions.

Nice and easy. Bit muddy after the rain but that’s to be expected. Lake views.

Beatiful trail with streams and babbling brooks abounding. Moderately difficult with some short sections of elevation gain.

A beautiful trail, often takes you along the edges of the lakes. You have it all to yourself. Seldom used. Especially in winter. Just prepare seriously for the ticks in the warm seasons.

Lovely trail! Super easy stroll. The trail does get a bit muddy but is easily bypassed.

Great campground and easy walking trail.

The trails are decently maintained and the creek is almost always running along the trail. There aren’t many sights along the way, or variation of elevation. A good place to mountain bike or for beginning trail runners to practice. The historical significance of the area is appealing, but there aren’t many physical representations to commemorate the area.

a chance to see different terrain, from lakeside to heavy wooded area. Overall nice trail.

Awesome trail I ride this trail several times a month!!

Nice variety of terrain and views of the lake. Recent storm left a lot of debris on the trails.

If you are looking for a trail with some small hills, and by water- I would recommend this trail! about 5 miles long, good for a walk/run. after a rainy period, be aware that it does flood in some places.

Gorgeous views in the spring and summer. The lotus blooms across the water make the lake so pretty. Watch out for snakes as I have seen some in the area. You can kayak and canoe here as well but you have to reserve your boat at the nature center register on the hill above.

Great trail. Bringing a fishing pole next time!

OK hiking. Lot's of bikers but they are pretty polite and good about calling out their presence. Great for running since it is a pretty smooth surface overall. I use this trail routinely.

Great trail with nice views. When hiked back in the summer noticed seed ticks so be prepared. Well
Maintained....

Nice hike with the pup.

AllTrails map is actually parts of four different trails in the extensive Ft. Henry Trail System: Telegraph, Volunteer, Piney, and Artillery. My wife and I hiked this part of Artillery as part of a different loop, with the other leg being Devil's Backbone. There are dozens of miles of beautiful easy-to-moderate trails in this system, which stretches from Piney Campground to the South Welcome Station to the Boswell Landing Backcountry Area. Get an accurate map from landbetweenthelakes.us and plan a hiking or backpacking trip. It's well worth the time.

AllTrails' map only shows ONE trail, PIckett Loop, of this extensive trail system that runs from Boswell Landing Backcountry Area to Piney Campground to the South Welcome Station. There are literally dozens of miles of beautiful, wide, easy-to-moderate trails here. Get the actual map from landbetweenthelakes.us and plan a hiking or backpacking trip. It's well worth the time.

Made the trek from the south welcome center to the north on 23/24 November. Beautiful area of land, nice rolling hills and plenty of wildlife. Pack heavy on water, never could find the water points.

Absolutely loved this trail!!! The scenery was awesome and we even saw a deer! Can’t wait to do it again.

Just did a section of it with our scouts. Nice trail, but loose rocks and abundant large acorns can make footing a little tricky in some places. Note, if traveling north from the South Welcome Station (mark N), water can be tough to find along the trail until Prospector's Spring, just north of mark K, about 14.5 miles from the welcome station. We had no joy at Brier Rose Branch (south of mark M) or the fire tower near Iron Mountain shelter. Also, not a loop as it says above.

Beautiful trail, will definitely revisit this one.

Easy trail. Was great to be close to the lake.
I'd do it again!

I look forward to mountain biking it which may be the way to best way to experience this trail. The nearby shooting range changes everything while hiking .

My son and I did a 16 mile overnight hike there this week end. There were plenty of springs and wild life and we only saw two other people the whole trip. This is a great trail system because you hike for a few hours or a few days by utilizing the different trails to make different routes.

First time riding this trail. I plan too go back again.

Easy loop hike for all ages, crosses a couple bridges, lots of neat flora and trees here as well. Walking between the two lakes is a very windy but peaceful experience.
