There's a lot to do and see at Edgar Evins State Park! Enjoy a picnic lunch at one of our shaded picnic areas, come for a visit during one of our annual events, hike some of the parks approximately 11 miles of trails, fish beautiful Center Hill Lake or go for a swim. Interpretative programs for all ages are scheduled during the summer months. Subjects range from local history to flora and fauna. Special programs are also provided upon request.

Great run; highly recommended. Veritable roller coaster. Definitely "lightly trafficked" with somewhat overgrown trails in parts, but they lead to amazing ridgetop lines and lake overlooks.

An excellent all-around hike. Great terrain variety, almost everything you can imagine on one hike except waterfalls. (The midpoint of the Merritt Ridge loop drops you to a surprisingly remote spot on the lake.)

can get strenuous going up two large hills besides that pretty nice

2nd most difficult trail ive done besides Bear Waller Gap. lots of hills. 8.3 mi total. again lots of hills. found a total of 6 ticks on me. Doesn't go to water!! Waves to rocky on the hill near the end. the lake next to it is gorgeous though!!!! perfect for dogs and swimming. just needs to go to water for more stars. or be by it. not just. a small creek or a cliff BY the lake.

4/15/17 Walked Millennium loop trail: 2.5 mile loop. Pleasant walk, enough uphill to get a good workout. Loops around a long hollow with two old home sites. ( just fireplace ruins and steps left) Numerous wildflowers. Trail in great condition. Good walk if you only have an hour or so and need a workout.

Really enjoyed the trail. Sparsely populated enough to let the dog run. Lots of challenging climbs but well maintained trails. No breathtaking views, but a couple nice places along the way to stop for a lunch break. Probably a little tough for little kids, but a fun workout otherwise.

Nice trail, not as many views as I would have liked. Lots of spiderwebs

Doing the whole trail including Merritt Ridge is well worth it. The views of the lake are gorgeous, with places to access the lake, great picnic spots on large rocks along lakeshore. Plenty of wildflowers. Great workout.

The Millienium loop is great for the difficulty. It would be a fun trail to take young people. The old homestead area is interesting. I went in early March and the valley had a lot of green - surprisingly. The connector trail is a good climb. The views from the top are great and the trail is nice. You walk along the ridge of a hill. The Merrit Ridge Loop was up and down and up and down and I don't think it is worth the difficulty. The views weren't great and there wasn't very much interesting to see or do. It is fine to do once, but I will not be re-doing this portion of the loop. 2 Stars for Merrit Ridge Loop. 4 Stars for Millenium+Connector.

My AllTrails app read 8.1 miles.

Great beautiful place! Fishing, fly fishing, camping, trails, wildlife, bird watching, crystal clear water, and beautiful view! Coming back soon!

Very challenging if you take all of the loops as there are alot of elevation changes. Was snow on the ground so when you went off trail was tricky. Some nice elevated views and probably not seen when foilage is full. However would be a good hike in summer if you wanted to get in the lake. Great job by the parks dept for clearing the roads after the very recent snowfall.
