I love this trail! The trail is well marked so you won’t get lost. It’s full of fun swimming holes with a couple of rope swings and logs to take a breather on. It’s good for walking or running but I wouldn’t bike it because there are a ton of trees in the middle of the muddy path.

Wildflowers and fungi everywhere in the fall and spring! Very muddy, come prepared!

Terribly overgrown! Could only stand to hike half of the loop. Spiders everywhere.

Good morning hike

one of my favorites. muddy in typically muddy spots on any trail. good trail for calorie burning.

I hiked the Lakeview Trail all the way around the lake today. I would say 50% was easy, 25% moderate, and 25% hard. There was a lot of damp spots, some so wet you could not pass and had to climb up rough terrain to make your own path to get around. Only experienced and agile hikers should attempt this feat. It was 8.05 miles long in my Samsung Hiking app, and 7.6 miles on the Alltrails app.

Awesome trail that has great views of the lake from all different angles. I didn’t see it mentioned but there is also allot of mountain bike and hiking trails on the other side of the lake. They keep the trails clear and well maintained. One of my favorite places. They also rent kayaks and water boards.

I don’t understand why this trail is rated hard, it’s not. It’s easy. I avoid this trail as it’s almost always busy and loud. There are plenty of other trails to explore.

One of my favorite trails, there is even a rope swing along the path so make sure to wear a suit or pack a towel!

It's a bland trail. It does pass an abandoned and dried up beaver pond which is kind of cool. If you walk towards the feeder stream there is a cool little waterfall. My GSD really likes this trail. I let him off his leash so he can explore and frolic in the creek. This is a wet trail so expect a little mud if it's rained recently. Especially if you bring your dog. As a bonus there is a deep water hole under the foot bridge before the last hill at the parking spot to rinse off your muddy dog. It was plenty big enough for my just under 100 pound GSD. I essentially like this trail because it's great for an active dog.

Great park. The place is well kept and clean. I started this trail, on the northeast end and walked along the south side of the lake. This side was very easy and flat. But, once over the dam, and you are on the north side, things get bushy and overgrown in places. There are several downed trees across the trail and it is a little more strenuous, with more up and downs. Will definitely return.

Great trail, had to hop on and off the trail across the road once but overall didn't see many people and really enjoyed the day! Ate lunch on a small, private lakeshore beach. Went clockwise and the last leg of it, or the right side of the lake is a bit overgrown in parts. Still an amazing experience.

Very cool off trail spot if you can find it. Came across a geo caching box here. Beautiful views and a great hike!

Stroud's Run is great! So much to do besides hike, wonderful place to spend the day with friends. One of the many things that makes the Athens area so special and unique. It's a beautiful park with lots of space and diversity for all kinds of different activities.
