The Arlie Moore Interpretive Trail is located in the Arlie Moore Recreation Area. The trail is a double segment loop, approximately 1.3. miles (2.2 kilometers) in length. The trail meanders through a mature southern pine forest. In 2002, the trail was rehabilitated in large part due to a partnership grant from ALCOA. In 2007 the National Recreation Reservation Service selected the Arlie Moore Interpretive Trail as one of America’s Top 25 Hiking Trails. Rangers give interpretive walks along the trail pointing out plants, trees, and wildlife along the way. All throughout the year, school groups and campers walk the shaded trail and enjoy the hidden sanctuary of this secluded little trail.

I was really excited about this trail, but I was sadly disappointed. The trail is not well marked at all and we got lost (not terribly, just went a wrong way ) twice. But the worse was the POISON IVY. It turned into a stressful hike because we had little kids who do not know how to identify poison ivy, but it also was bad because it was IN our path, not just around it. we had to walk on poison ivy for most of the way. The trail itself its beautiful. we would go again maybe in the winter, when there is no poison ivy , but I would also take some ribbon to mark our way.

Flat looping trail with lots of shade. We did this with the grand kids and they had no troubles! Great hike for kids. They had to carry the 1 year old as I think the stroller would have been tough on this trail. The weeds are starting to cover certain parts so maintenance is needed.

All in all a great Mother’s Day hike!

Super easy trail to follow. Short distance and a loop which makes it nice for all ages.
We were disappointed that the information signs for stations 8, 9 &10 were missing.
