The trail begins at the dam site overlook area. As the name suggests, flowering dogwood trees abound throughout the area. Spectacular overlooks, beautiful geographic features, and one of the largest bluff shelters found on Beaver Lake can be seen on this trail. The trail crosses the highway and reaches a rest point with a bench, then winds under bluffs before leading back to a trailhead. The trail is rated as moderate in difficulty.

Not well marked when crossing the highway. Not well maintained, a lot of brush on the trail and we all got a lot of chigger bites

If you do the loop, I don't recommend following the trail once you cut back up to the highway. It was very overgrown on that end, and we lost the trail at least twice. Nothing interesting to see on that stretch, either. Awesome overlook and long, beautiful bluff line on the segment that goes across the highway. Worth seeing!

I camped in the "pines". Gorgeous camp sites. Clean full amenities at a Corps of Engineers site. great fishing and other rec areas. Great canoeing.
