very easy trail for a beginner....now the trail going to the tower was easy except the last half of it got a little steep and a little moderate trail other wise a real easy trail

HikingGreat!

Fairly easy hike except for ascending the trail up to the tower but the view is completely worth it. Lots of other trails to loop into if you want to make more of a day of it. I will say if you’re trying to do the whole loop and go up to the tower it’s helpful to have the AllTrails app on because there are lots of intersections.

This LOOP trail uses Lakeside trail and Chinquapin trail up to fire tower back down to Chinquapin trail left to Big Oak trail right .06 to Lake Road left back to Nature Center. It’s helps to get a paper map from the Park Several trails intersect.

Copperhead on the way up to fire tower, just passed the last bridge. Other than that I suggesting hiking in the evening or early morning to avoid waiting to go up the fire tire

HikingGreat!

Incorporated into a longer hike. Well maintained and good exercise. Can be easily turned into a much longer hike by taking the Indian Pipes trail towards Laurel Run Park. A gem in Kingsport!

Saw lots of wildlife both in and out of the habitats. Beautiful trail with lots of bridges over the marsh. $5 entrance fee

Loved this trail! Don’t go by recorded map unless you want to go to the fire tower and do the full Lakeside Loop trail. I decided on my way back down to do the whole thing. Beautiful views, challenging hike. My favorite combo!

Easy stroll around the lake with the highlights being a “floating bridge” and the damn overlook. Nice relaxing walk over a wide and soft footpath. Recommend for all ages and fitness levels

Great!

Nice wide and maintained trail that is 95% easy-moderate with a few inclines peppered throughout. The ending views on top of the fire tower are well worth the journey!

Wonderful hike for any age! Somewhat nerve-racking climbing the fire tower, but the view at the top washes all of that away.

This is a roughly 1 mile down and back at entry point to Lakeside Trail at Bays Mountain. Tons of various mushrooms to search for. Great for the kids to explore nature.

There’s a few routes you can take to get up to the Fire Tower, some shorter than others. Difficult trip if it’s recently rained. It eventually becomes very steep, but the view at the top is worth the trip up.

Beautiful but steep hike up to the Fire Tower. Not too difficult if you take your time. Here in mid July and the bugs are awful when you are anywhere near the water so use bug spray or don't.... You have been warned. Also pretty cool to be able to check out all the animals they have near the parking lot, lots of wolves being good pups just lounging around
