The hike to the dam was beautiful and pleasant but after that the trail in the forest was poorly maintained, basically just paint on trees and had many many tiny ticks on us. The forest trail needs more work to have a more pleasurable hike.

Had to lower the rating after coming over and seeing some ticks on my leg

my husband and I did the Virginia Pine trail. overall ok but got a little lost once we got to the campground on where the trail picked back up. We look forward to doing the other one soon.

A solid recreation area/campground hike. Features an Indian mound and an overlook of Chewalla Lake. The section through the woods south of the campground will need to be reblazed soon. Also, you can combine this route with part of the Virginia Pine Trail to form a semi-loop.

Under construction on the early parts of this trail but overall well marked.

10 sites with electric and water hookup, the rest are primitive but nice.

This is the 1st park I went to using this park. I didn't read that is was there and back (my fault) so we went further until we run into people who said we should turn around. We walked about 6 miles instead of 4, but it is ok. it wasn't real hard or steep. there are no signs (that's bad). the 1st mile is very easy and it is a beautiful area. This a great 1 to 2 hour walk on a pretty afternoon.

This is an easy either 2 or 4 mile loop from the boat ramp to the swimming area and back for a 2 mile loop or for a 4 mile loop by hiking to the east end of dam and back. The spring fed lake and surrounding forest provides a pristine setting with overlooks and some very scenic views. The trail winds around the lake and surrounding hills populated with some impressive white oak and shortleaf pine trees.
