First time here and I’d say this is overall a moderate to easy trail. It’s very dog and kid friendly. There are multiple path options and trails are clear and well marked. There were bathrooms available at the start and at about the 4 mile mark at the visitors center (assuming you follow this map). The one thing worth noting is that there was no “wow” view, no massive visual award for trekking here. The lake had receded greatly when we visited. No complaints though. Enjoy!

Loved this hike! Went after the hurricane, some damage but, clean up was happening. Very few other hikers out. Was nice to sit on a log for a snack and watch the deer go by.

This was a really great Trail to hike. Lots of beautiful views and challenging pathways. Will definitely go back.

Fun loop, a few ups and downs, somewhat more challenging if you take the red trail (Sweetgum) out and the yellow (Homestead) back. Most of the lake views are seasonal, for a short while you'll be at lake level near the rope swing and the bench. I usually park at the Visitors Center, it's the trail head for both trails.
