Getting There

This multi-use, paved trail primarily provides two distance options. The route around the lake is 0.7 miles and by extending the route into the adjoining woods, one can increase the loop to 1.2 miles. The route along the lake passes by a garden pool with a waterfall, metal artwork, and a flagstone landing with cascading streamscape. The trail is ideal for runners, cyclists, dog walkers, seniors, families with strollers, and anyone starting a fitness program. Accessibility: There is a paved parking lot off of Suwanee Dam Road at the start of the route with multiple designated handicapped-accessible parking spaces and two stripes access aisles. The trail surface is paved asphalt and typically at least six feet wide. Other than a steep section between 0.7 and 0.8 miles when going clockwise (estimated up to 12%), the grade is mostly gentle (all 5% or less). Wheelchair/mobility equipment or stroller users may need assistance in the steep section.

7-acre lake Note: No fishing or swimming allowed. 1.2 mile asphalt trail with 1/10 mile markers playground picnic pavilion two 2-acre play meadows outdoor classroom restrooms parking area

Nice short paved trail. Not much in the way of woods. But a fun afternoon hike.

Typical stroller park. Crowded. Lots of runners, dogs, and families. Not somewhere to go if you’re looking to get back to nature.
