]This trail follows the shore line along wheeler lake. Its a pretty hike with nice overlooks and plenty of wildlife. This park is not made for hikers. It is a resort park. However this little gem of a hike is very well maintained (almost too well in places it looked like the trail was cut by a small bulldozer) and it looked like it was rarely used. There were lots of little surprises on the way like some near record size trees and in one place something that looked like a remote weather station.

Not clearly marked. A little boring, I wish they’d cut it closer to the water. We started on the blue loop trail head, then continued onto the yellow trail to the red loop. When we got to the golf frisbee on the red loop we hit the road and walked back to blue loop trail head where we parked (by the lodge) the lodge has bathrooms inside to the left. Was about 2.5 miles the way we did it

only downside to me was it runs into a disc golf course and the trail becomes somewhat confusing. still a stout walk with a few of the hills. nice views and saw several deer.

There are no obvious signs leading the trail at one point. But very pretty with lots of birds. I took my dogs HIGHLY recommended leashes. We saw deer and squirrels and listened to all the birds none of which were scared of my dogs.

Decent short trail. Fallen trees covered in moss litter the forest floor. Beautiful, right on the river. Came across a group of deer and they were not afraid of us. I was able to get about 15 yards from them.

This is a beautiful walk/hike all times of the year. These trails are obvious and easy to follow, but not well marked, so you don't really know what color trail you are on. There are plenty of parking options at different points of the trail system. You can see and hear a lot of different birds. This is a great birding area. There are a lot of deer, so it is best to keep your dogs leashed if they are prone to chasing; the roads are still relatively close. Nice views of the water. The trail is all shaded. This blue loop is beautiful. I call it the fairytale forest.

We started at the trailhead near picnic pavilion #3 and by connecting the red and yellow trails and the blue loop we had over 3.5 miles. Great Views of Wheeler lake and the Tennessee River.

Beautiful views. Started at the lodge on blue to yellow then red loop back to yellow and blue to the lodge where the wind had picked up and a fire was waiting. Glad we had a map because the trails needed to be marked better.

We did about 4 miles from the yellow and blue trail markers. Didn't see the red. Needs to be marked a little better

horrible the trees are cut down

We always try to do this hike whenever we take our camper to Joe Wheeler State Park. It is a pretty hike and you will always see plenty of deer.

Easy hike. There are a few pretty views of the Tennessee River. If you like to see deer this is the place to go! Saw more than 30 on my last visit.
