Very nice trail through the woods, follows the lake edge the whole way. A few areas not well marked, but overall easy to follow. Excellent parking area, restroom, and playground/picnic area.

great fall hike. easy but farther than my usual city pond loops. great if you don't mind the nuclear tower.

Great hike, easy and nice views. Our pup loved it!

Perfect longer hike for a beginner like me. Nice to see the historical things lake, power plant and more. Very shady and relatively flat.

Easy and pretty. Just wish that water treatment plant didn't smell so bad

This was my first trail experience in North Carolina and it was great! Walking along the lake was absolutely beautiful! Most of the trail was shaded which I appreciated - I'd still recommend sun block and bug spray.

Bugs, noise, nuclear plant

Great 5 mile trail loop with impressively diverse scenery! Perfect for hot weather - entire trail is shaded and a nice breeze blows off the water. Good for dogs and kids.
Watch out for ticks and chiggers! Got the worst chigger bites of my life the one time I didn't wear good socks.

clean and easy trail, will be better once the trails are compleated and linked

Fun trail, but marked very poorly. I couldn't figure out how to get off the trail and took a wrong turn several times. It would be helpful to go with somebody who knows where they are going. That being said, I'm going to try it again!

Nice hike along the lake. Harris Lake is a nice park with a playground, shelters, and some fun activities.

I've been here dozens of times, and there are some pretty cool places if you know where to go

It was a nice day for the trip. I wish we still had a canoe.

Another one that we followed by car. It looks very worthy of a canoe/camping trip.

Beautiful trail with lots of nice wooded views. Was neat to pass by the nuclear power plant. If its been raining a lot it can get rather muddy, but even if you have to leave the trail to get around it, the trail follows the water line so it's easy to pick back up again.
