Me and my 3 best friends took a weekend to go backpacking and stay in the primitive site #1. It right up against the water and we LOVED it. Everything was clean and the fire pit was huge. Just remember there is no water or electricity so make sure to bring a water filter. It's not an easy hike but totally worth it. It actually ends up being 13 miles not 11. I would love to do this trail again in the fall!

beautiful vistas of the lake there arent. you can kind of see the lake through a heavy growth of trees but i would hardly call it scenic. that said.... the beginning loop is nice with a wide variety of trees and succulents. the trail is mostly in the shade but there are a few open sunny spots. i saw a pair of wild turkeys on my return loop here. i would recommend the first part of the trail but skip the loop to bald knob.

This is a great trail to get your feet wet with trail running. Nice and flat but need to tap dance around the roots and rocks. I'll defiantly be running this trail again.

Backpacked the volunteer trail and the day loop. We did just under 13 miles. This trail has the potential to be very beautiful, and in some places it is. It's so sad that the boaters and fisherman have dumped so much trash in the lake. Just about every opportunity we had to walk along a shoreline was ruined by the large amounts of litter. Sickening how much disrespect some people have.
