The trails are easy but the beauty of the hike was enhanced by the fall colors. Having moved from California to Georgia recently, the kids and I enjoyed the hike and discovered a wonderful place to visit within minutes of our house. Awesome!!

Park is closed for the season. Hiking is still available but the gates close and LOCK at 1700 hours. There is NO free parking where you are able to retrieve your vehicle after 1700 hours. Hike early ;-)

I hiked the trail this morning in about an hour and a quarter. The crews did a nice job cleaning up after Irma.

It was a awesome trail. There were some stairs! There are pretty views of the water, very clean, and a great place to go in the summer!! I would recommend this trail!

Nice trail with good elevation changes and views of the lake. I only found the trail to be 3.7 miles.

I will do this trail again. And, even though I hiked on the Labor Day Holiday, it was not too crowded. The parking lot was controlled by a ranger that was very friendly and helpful. The trail was in good shape and the boardwalks were in surprisingly good shape even as well used as this trail is, and thanks to all users for not leaving trash - I do not think I saw any litter - great job everyone.
