good trail nice for riding. or a good run.
If you're looking for ups and downs this isn't your trail. This is, for the most part, a very easy, very level packed gravel lakeside walk. It winds through what use to be a camp ground that was closed in the early to mid 1980's. There's picnic tables all along the shoreline, abandoned restroom facilities, and old signage. It would be amazing if one day the park decided to re activate some of these old camp sites as 'backpack in only' grounds since they offer some of the absolute best lake views in the park. I wouldn't recommend this for mountain biking, by the time you realize you're bored to tears the loop will be about done.
It was great hiking. Very easy and wide enough to enjoy different activities. Not crowded, so it is definitely good for family.
pretty easy took my 3 yr old with me of course he may have walked a whole 1 mile lol nice view of lake and theres you are hear signs about every half mile there are benches and picnic tables to sit at and there are a few bridges.
to Kim below saying its poorly marked must not have paid attention there are blue lines on trees arrow signs marking the way and the you are here signs you have to be blind not to see them
Hiked this trail for the first time and really enjoyed the lake views and wide trail path. I wish the side trails were marked so we could try a new path without fear of taking a wrong turn. Poorly marked for a fee pay GA state park.
