This is a soft pine needle trail with some roots and wooden boardwalk sections. The west side goes along the lake with some nice views. You start at the nature center on the Chinquapin Trail and connect to the Prairie Branch Trail. You can connect to the Dogwood Trail for a different route. The trails are well marked. Accessibility: There are several designated accessible spaces in both of the paved parking lots off of State Park Road 40 at the east end of the trail. Some of them are van-accessible with striped access aisles. The trail surface is soft dirt and pine needles with roots or a wooden boardwalk some with or without edge barriers and typically at least 6 feet wide. The estimated grade is mostly gentle (5% or less). All-terrain tires or motorized equipment may be needed for the surface type. There are benches along the route for resting.Show more

This is a wide trail that follows low-lying areas of this region. It is an easy route that most users will enjoy, that can be categorized as walking more than hiking. Sections of this trail may be closed seasonally in winter due to high water levels, so it is recommended to download the offline trail maps to follow the route safely. Show more
