VERY pretty lake, the trail parallels the lake the whole way. Plenty of places to swim. The trail gets VERY busy in the summer months, if you space out and get past the first half mile it gets pretty isolated. Crumbly shale shelves make up the majority of the foot path.

It's a decent trail that you'll want to do early before the boaters come out. I'd do it again.

Note: there is a park fee of $7 per car; it is primarily a recreation area for boats and horses. Nice and shady, and fairly flat, if rocky. We were on the south end, there, you have to walk through the camp sites to get to the trail. Lots of rocks for small kids to throw in the lake.

I've hiked this trail sence i was little, great for a quick and moderatly easy hike. Lots of shade along the way if its a hotter day, and beautiful landscape.

Trail follows along the west side of Carter lake. Easy 3 mile hike from North to South ends.
