Beautiful hike on a mulched trail. Great Lake views, perfect for a short hike.

Don't forget to stop at the park's office and see the little nature museum. My only complaint is that the trail can be overcrowded on weekends and holidays with strollers and packs of people. The Sugg Farm area is more rugged and "officially not open" (according to the signs) but has lots more trails. Just keep you eyes open for copperheads and spider webs in summer.

Very nice trail. It is well maintained, the path is wide enough for two small groups to easily pass each other head-on while walking/running 2 abreast. The walking path is covered with mulch most of the way, so runners have a soft, but firm surface that removes some of the body pounding of the activity. The one shortcoming of the route is that while it is possible now to make a complete loop around the lake, which is contrary to what some of the online brochures state, one has to run/walk next to the busy road for a little less than a quarter mile on the part of the trail that crosses the dam, near the park entrance. That was the bad news. The good news is that while walking along that part of the path, one can see the very nice path that will soon cut through the woods and remove the necessity of walking next to the road to complete a loop.

My favorite local running trail! It’s well-maintained year-round and is fantastically cushy thanks to its sawdust lining. Long enough to really get into and enjoy the scenery.

Great facility! A beautiful and easy 2 mile walk around the lake. Lots of turtles sunbathing. So scenic and serine.

Great for trail-running, this trail goes around Bass Lake in Holly Springs. Flat except for one section that takes you to a shelter bordering Bass Lake Road. Lots of activities including fishing, boat rentals, bird watching, nature classes, or just taking an easy stroll, it's a nice place to get out and exercise. You can access either via the greenway or parking right at Bass Lake Park.
