The trail disappeared a little over 3/4 of the way through. Downed trees and swamp make the trail impassable at the north side of the trail.

Trail disappeared due to downed trees. Otherwise, okay.

The drive in after the gate was a canopy of color. The first mile around the lake by way of the dam was great. Past the dam into the woods a mile there were SO MANY downed trees hiking quickly became impossible. We turned around. It looked to be a simple lake hike. The park and the trail appear to be poorly maintained overall.

Beautiful lake side trail. Unfortunately, the trail is currently impassable due to a large number of down trees. Almost got lost trying to work our way around the trees. Be careful...

HikingGreat!

There are SOOOO many more trails @ P. Grist. Probably 10 miles more than just the lake loop. Many of them are horse trails (I guess). But a trail is a trail. It’s super easy to get going and end up far away from where you began. That happened to me yesterday, so be mindful of that. But, the park is gorgeous. I have spent the past 4 years on the Cape Fear coast in NC, so just walking up and downhill is a thrill. Also, seeing a diversity of trees is a treat for me right now. Walking the loop yesterday I saw 4 deer. Maybe it was the same one 4 times (?). I’m just happy to have so many trails to explore now. Woo-Hoo!!!

This is a good dog friendly trail. Slight hills throughout. Good scenery. Bring bug spray. Shaded most of the time.

First to Review

Nice trail near Selma that circles a small lake. Tried to hike it again last night and was told that the gate to the park is locked at 7. So much for closing at sunset. Will definitely go back and hike this or some of the other shorter trails in the park.
