We did some of the trail but had to back track a few miles because of the bridge being washed out. This was after we had walked through another area that was flooded up to our knees.

Interesting trail with a variety of walking surfaces. Moderate difficulty but good for kids. Part of the trail is flooded right now but there are temporary markers.

This trail is almost all shaded, so it is good even when hot. Not much grass, so don’t need to worry about mowed condition. Can use this trail to connect with Eagle Roost or Whispering Pine if you’re looking for a longer hike.

I ended up getting off trail and merging into a different trail that was washed out and overgrown. That trail eventually led me to the lodge where, after a few more minutes of walking, I arrived back to the paved trail. For the most part the trail was paved but the section that wasn't was very nice and indeed like walking in a "fairy tail". I did, however, end up with tick and chiggers.

Currently I wouldn’t advise doing this trail. High waters and flooding have trashed both ways or flooded it out.

We hiked it from the campground to the Nature Center. A little bit of it was like a service road to a pump house. The rest was a dirt path that consisted of big rocks and lake views.

We love the pine trees on the Sequoyah paved trail.

I hiked it and the Eagles roost today. I was easy. It was a beautiful day! I'm glad I did it. Tomorrow a cold front is coming in for a while. It was cool when I stated this morning, so I was the only one on the trail. By the time I was done I seen a few people coming out to hike. If you live fairly close by I highly suggest coming here. It's beautiful. And there are other trails also. One that is paved, and easy. The trails I hiked are very visible and clearly marked.

only one section of the trial is nice, the rest is walking down the road.

Pretty View, short trail near water, lots of up and down rock climbing, step type. Great place to go if you are in the neighborhood.

First part of the trail is nice, but the last half is not. It is basically paved road. The coyotes at the nature center are pretty. They also have a pretty eagle.

Gorgeous trail with minimal noise, save the occasional powerboat. The trail with "Fossils" labeled on it cuts really close to the water; I hiked after a few solid days of rain, and my shoes were pretty wet. Then the trail disappeared into the water toward the end; it would have been possible to scramble up if I hadn't had a 35lb pack on with my son it it :) I recommend doing this hike when the lake is lower. The fossils in the rocks by the lake's edge were super cool.

Short trail- more like one mile if you walk the whole thing and not just along the water. Beautiful views, lots of rock scrambling, and awesome fossils! Not a good trail for kids or people with trouble walking as you do have to scramble up rocks and it can be very slippery. As a reminder- it is a felony to remove fossils or artifacts from federal and state lands!

Great trail however you should spray down with bug repellent! Chiggers!!

Half the trails were flooded and trash everywhere but some of the areas was like being in a fairy tail!

Short little trail that starts just off the nature center located at the Sequoyah State Park. Really enjoyed hiking it with my 4 year old son. You actually have to hike part of the Three Forks Trail to get to it. You're mostly walking along a rocky bluff that runs near the lake. Really enjoyed the views.

Loved this one! Fun and a little different. There is several other trails out there, I did one that was like 3.8 miles.
