Henry Horton State Park is well known for their championship 18-hole golf course, inn and cabins, campgrounds and trap and skeet range. The 1,140-acre park has three hiking trails where you may see a variety of wildlife such as wild turkey, deer and many kinds of wildflowers. Summer months bring hours of family enjoyment whether it's swimming in our Olympic-sized pool, fishing along the Duck River, playing volleyball or basketball, or having a picnic, Henry Horton State Park has a lot to offer.

did the outer loop and had a great hike. did pick up several seed ticks and hit every spider web lol but other than that it was a great hike. wish I saw some of the local wildlife besides the spiders but oh well maybe another time.

This is a flat trail along the Duck River comprised of an old road bed, double-track trail and a few sections of narrow over-grown walking trail. I'm rating this trail two stars for a couple of reasons. First off, there really isn't a lot to see because the weeds are over 6' tall on the uphill side of the trail. In addition, only about a mile of the trail is actually a loop - the remaining 3 miles are out and back. Lastly, several sections were really over-grown and an invitation for ticks. There are a lot better trails around.

Well, I planned to hike the Hickory Ridge Outer Trail but, along the way I discovered the River Trail. Not knowing where it lead, I took it.

This was a great little trail to hike in the rain today. It's marked at 1.5 miles, but my smart watch tracked me at having walked nearly 3.5 miles, so I'm not sure how that happened. The only downsides are the road noise and the ticks! On the plus side, I was the only one out there so it was an easy, flat hike. I'm an avid hiker, and I'd gauge this trail as easy because it's so flat. It's July, so there were a few wildflowers scattered around. And I saw an awesome turtle on the way out!
