It was closed because the one if the bridges was broken so we had to turn back around.

The bridge is closed 0.3 miles into the loop. Very disappointed.

The trail it’s self is poorly marked. Forget blazes. There are posts with Maps posted on them but they are posted at the junction and you don’t know whether to go right or left thus you can end up going in a circle. My recommendation is to keep taking the left-hand turns and once you reach the directional post after number 17, go straight if you go left you’ll end up at the back gate of someone’s house. I combine this with the lake trail also because it looks like this trail walks out in the open alongside Clemson road and the traffic sound alone would make it unpleasant. The All Trails app was great in showing me when I made a wrong turn and because I am somewhat familiar with the area I was able to extend my trip by not taking the entire perimeter trail. All Trail app helps keep you aware of what Trail you are on or if you have left it. I have found it extremely helpful. NOTE: Today, Nov. 26 I took the Perimeter trail again and went past the Children's garden as indicated and came to a locked gate...on a Monday. Had to retrace my steps and took another trail around the lake and that is blocked because of a footbridge being in disrepair - it has been for sometime but now is blocked for safety reasons. There is NO indication on the info board in the parking lot about the blocked passages.

Lots of trail choices keep this from being boring. Is wonderful, as a homeowner in the area, to have this place in the woods to run, walk, and just sit by one of the ponds to meditate. Thank you Clemson for allowing us to share!

Combined the perimeter loop with the lake loop and a little extra on the end to make a 7 mile loop. Plenty of opportunity to change things up almost every time you come out here. Great trail to walk/run/bike.

Rode perimeter loop and lake loop. Perimeter loop is fairly easy but has some variations that make it fun to ride over and over again. Lake loop has a few nice rest areas with nice views of the lakes to hang a hammock and relax.

I love walking the dogs on these trails. Close to town and kept clean. I've never met an unfriendly person out there and I don't feel unsafe.

I added this trail when I couldn't locate it on the site. This is a nice user friendly trail/trails that are very easy to hike. Some very wide trails and some in the woods that are a little closer. Would have given it five stars except that it's a dog on leash park but there is so much traffic in certain areas and it's a bit close in the woods so you can be surprised by joggers and in turn my dogs surprise them. I'm always aware some people are afraid of dogs so you have to be aware of the larger amount of joggers. Other than that this a nice little gem hidden back behind The Village at Sandhills. And the lake house is quite nice.
