Beautiful trail but lots of pebbles and hills. I thoroughly enjoyed this but would not consider this an easy trail but rather moderate. Worth checking out.

You can hike south 6 miles from Panther Bay down to Robinson Point, ample parking at trailheads either end.
Or, you can also hike north across Highway 101, then north on David's Trail along the eastern shore of Lake Norfork.
I believe David's Trail is approx 17 miles long (linear) if the Robinson Point loop is included.

nice trail, has a few hills that could be challenging for some but is excellent workout and hiking trail.

It is well groomed ... pebbles blanket most of the trail. Slight undulations. You never really get into the wild and maintain some degree of contact to a road albeit separated by trees. Best for trail running, particularly for a person who doesn't want to get "too remote" in case something goes wrong.

There is a 5k turn around marker for anyone wanting to do cross country running.

Going back tomorrow to trail run it. Note: I am from NH. This is not a moderate trail by my standards and I am 6'3" 254lbs. I would grade this as easy unless you run it.

Really fun trail with lots of sights to see. Trail was a lot harder than I expected. Lots of hills and switchbacks. Started at Panther Bay and ended at Rocking Chair Resort. Would recommend to anyone but be prepared for a hilly hike.
