This is not your typical woodsy trail. You are able to drive most of it in a 4x4 vehicle. The trail is very sandy and often filled with very large puddles that force you to turn back and go a different way. We ended up having to turn around quite a few times due to dead ends or puddles, and ended up having to walk back to our cars on the main road. It was not possible to follow the recorded trail unless you plan on swimming across the lake in certain parts. Overall, it was still a cool hike with the views of the lake. Saw a lot of wildlife too - frogs and a snake!

This one was “meh”. I started going east, and the first half had some nice views. The second half was a slog: Old Batona trail is rutted, loose-sand road with some mudholes, which is not fun to walk on, and the last 0.5 mile or so is really close to the road, and at some points you have to walk on the shoulder. Was not relaxing for me or the dog.

trail is washed out (looks like permanently). Still v nice what part of it I could navigate.

Definitely nice scenery but do not follow the marked trail on AllTrails… It is not accurate. We had to backtrack several times because the trail had been washed out by storms in the past apparently.

Nice scenery for sure and flat open trails. The only thing is this advertised 4.3 mile trail is not looped. So if you walk around the multiple bodies of water which was recorded to be around 4 miles be prepared to walk directly back your original track because of the fact that it’s no longer looped. As a result total hike is 7 or so miles.
