Getting There

This is a relatively new addition to the Lake Sequoyah trails. The trail is level, and well-traveled by both people and horses - watch where you step! The trail is marked with red blazes, though a bit ambivalently. It's not possible to get lost here, so just go with the flow. You'll follow the shoreline of the lake nearly the entire time. The trail features an old bridge from which one can fish (with proper permits), cascades in the spillway area, and marvelous views of the lake. The Shoreline trail connects to the Spillway and Island trails.

Just before crossing the one-lane bridge on Sequoyah Lake Drive, turn left at the brown information sign. Follow the road (ignoring the "Road Closed" sign - it's not closed) through the red gate to the parking area and trailhead sign.

Trails not great. Muddy mess. Swimming at the falls was the only redemptive qualification. Don’t believe the sign; terrible for bike rides

Beautiful trail- it is also a horse trail, so get ready for some droppings! There are little trails that are set off from the main trail, they usually led to a gorgeous view of the water, with natural waterfalls throughout. The main trail was a little overgrown, steep, sometimes muddy, and very shady. I definitely recommend hiking boots, and keep your eyes open for snakes! Good luck!

This trail sucks, it smells of horse shit and there are crazy bugs everywhere. Th ere is also quite a bit of poison oak or ivy. Skip it

Really pretty to swim and hike! You can find different ways through the trails to different swimming locations!

A lot of horse droppings and very overgrown. I would not recommend any of the trail with the exception of going down to the water.

Nice hike if you don't mind the mud, horse poop and overgrown/poorly maintained trail. Lots of criss-crossing paths. Trail markings were visible only in places that really seemed to need them. Didn't see anyone else on the trail but saw people on the fishing pier. Bring bug spray. The road to the west side of the one lane bridge and east side of the park was closed. No facilities for the parts of the trail we were on.

This is a nice little area if you just want to do a bit of hiking and see the spillway. Lots of intersecting paths from people just cutting straight through to the water to fish, and a little overgrown - recommend boots and bug spray if you are doing anything except just walking straight to see the water. Really nice water flow when we visited (3 weeks ago).

Path was covered in mud and horse tracks had torn it all up.

Good walk. Really muddy in a few places but fairly easy to get around. Water is flowing really well right now so the roar is nice.

Good hike for a quick, easy adventure. A little muddy, but you are in nature during the rain season, so it is expected. Beautiful scenery and the falls were great. Definitely will be back.

Great little trail for quick getaway. Went after lots of rain so lots of mud and puddles but fantastic falls coming over the dam and the overflow.

The lake is really cool. Especially after all the rain we’ve been getting. Of course that makes the trail super muddy but you have to expect that. The trail wasn’t marked very well at all. Several branching trails. I’m glad I have this app or I’d be very lost. Since it’s been raining so much the water current was very fast. So cool to watch.

The views of the water are really pretty in some parts! The trails get really muddy in other parts. You have to dodge horses from time to time, but I didn’t really mind that. Looks like a good place if you like to forage for mushrooms or look at moss.
