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.

Good trail , Short but good elevation gains but not too much that it is difficult. Wished it was longer.

Tough 8 miles with some good coaster-age. 4 stars for lack of real views.

Went in August. Spiderwebs everywhere. Only made it .7 in before I decided against purchasing the whole silk shirt. Getting 3 star for being average for TN from what I was able to see before I backed out. Will re-visit review in winter, and reassess.

Very neat trail, runs along the creek and the lake. However it is not .6 miles or easy. It is 2 miles and is rated moderate to difficult by the park. It was very technical with lots of steep climbs, and even crossing a creek. It is very pretty, just not what we expected.

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.
