This map is wrong.

The trail itself isn’t stellar.. basically a dirt road with cow pasture on one side and woods on the other. The trail doesn’t follow the creek or view the Lake Norris. But! about 3 miles in there’s a nice view of another lake that’s well worth the walk. It’s man made by an old sand mine and is beginning to fill in with aquatic plants and some native plants around the edges. Not much to see here and the path/road is sugar sand that’s been roughed up by horse traffic.

You’re probably better off saving this one for a kayak or canoe trip around Lake Norris, which is what the map is showing.

The reason for 4 stars is because the trail on the map is incorrect. I think the trail highlighted on this app is a boating trail so don't follow it. however there is a walking path that is really beautiful but don't assume that you'll be able to follow the map on this app.

Fine, easy trail with shade and sun. End of trail is at a canoe landing on Lake Norris.
