The rail trail is a quaint paved trail. There is a nice little single-trak 0.5 mi lake loop you can add on near the end.

It’s a wonderful trail with lots of shade, beautiful scenery, and a good paved trail for biking or walking. We will definitely be back for another round.

Excellent flat paved trail w great views. You can picnic under the large bridge. Just wish there was bathrooms there and it would be perfect.

Loved it here! Paved trail, easy for a stroller. We even took the stroller onto the unpaved areas and it wasn’t too difficult. Lots of pretty bridges and shady areas.

Scenic, easy and very kid friendly. Great for those who need a smooth path due to ambulatory challenges. Short, but enjoyable.

Great trail, stroller friendly! However the small loop near the jail is not stroller friendly, overgrown and a lot of litter.

Great trail if you have little children. It is a short bike ride but very scenic along the river. Great place for a picnic lunch!

Highly recommended for an easy walk. Suggest a few off the course detours to get back in the woods

What a great trail....paved, but what a view along the river! We enjoyed the enter path! Plenty of parking and not crowed for a Saturday. There are some off paths around the lake and are perfect for a deviation. The suspension bridge was fun! Great for any age! The river and huge boulders are beautiful. We ended the day a the Currahee Vinyard and Winery. What a day!

Great trail - easy walking for two out of shape middle-agers. We took the road back around by the hydro plant rather than doubling back. Very scenic!

Easy paved trail along the river. At about the half way point you reach a suspension bridge that crosses the Tallulah River and then the trail continues in the opposite direction. We doubled back and did it all again. We were riding our beach cruiser bikes and it is a very comfortable ride. Nice and shady pretty much the whole way.
