More isolated hiking than very busy Lake Johnson or Umstead. A few intense grades, but pretty level hiking with less of the eroded roots & rocks of Johnson & Umstead.

This place is in a wooded, very lonely residential community,more specifically, it is directly in someone's backyard. We did not feel welcome to exit our car no less walk upon the property. We will not return, and we do not recommend this place to people with children.

Great little hiking trails. Beautiful and easy. Love the rocks that talk about geology.

Pretty scenic walk through the woods and loved the talking trees and rocks. There is more than just the 1 mile loop (longer trail about 8 miles and a lake w/gazebo). Good family fun and dog friendly.

Clemmons is a favorite place. The orange trail is the best...just enough diversity in terrain to give a good work2.
