Great day for a hike, went down Company Mill Spur from the Harrison entrance to Umstead, crossed the bridge and started the loop counterclockwise. Took the 1 mile shortcut via the Reedy Creek crushed gravel multi-use trail and rejoined the Company Mill at the top of the big hill, where there are nice benches near a historic graveyard for water, a snack and a quick rest. Nice trail for trailrunners, dog walkers, and children, seems a bit crowded on the weekends. Upon the return went over to the dam area and spotted a 5 foot long water snake sunning on a rock. Although I've been on this trail many times, there always seems to see something new to see on this trail, one of if not the most popular trail in Umstead State Park.

Whoopsie...wrong trail :) Go the extra mile for the full loop. It’s worth it!

Good trail - truly moderate, light traffic on a Tuesday afternoon.

While it may be heavily used and lacking maintenance, it is a good trail to get you out there and into the woods.
