This trail has two main trailheads: one at the east dam parking lot off Hwy 39 and one on road to Crabtree Cove off Hwy 32. It is a chat trail great for walking or running. There are two loop trails attached: Quarry Loop - 0.9 mile loop takes you to beautiful overlook of lake and old rock quarry. Overlook Loop - 0.7 mile loop meanders through various wildlife habitats and along the lake. Without taking either loop the trail is 1.6 miles from trailhead to trailhead. From the east dam parking lot the trail begins flat along the lake edge. Once you cross the work access road you enter woods for the rest of the trail. You can also access the trail from a small parking lot off Hwy 32, need to watch closely for turn off.

Not too scenic.... Short and easy. There is some fun cliff jumping though!
