Delightful jaunt through the forest. Some uneven surfaces and magic bridges. Started through a fairy garden, with fanciful tree formations, then got a little more rustic. Lovely lake views.

This is becoming on of my favorite trails. The Honeycutt section from Raven Ridge to Durant is excellent.

Really had fun on this trail but be prepared for lots or roots along the way. Well marked and quiet even though it is right behind a neighborhood!!!

Hiked this earlier today, and had a great time. Ended up doing 8 miles, although part of the trail just hit a dead end and I had to turn around and then go back past where I parked to get some good mileage. The rest of the trail towards the dam was well marked and in good condition. Good views of the lake, and nice streams present along the way.

A great 10 miler through the woods and through the Honeycutt game lands beside Falls Lake. Glimpses of the lake are more open without the leaves on the trees and the woods really open up through the game lands. The trail is part of the MST and well-marked. Blaze-orange vests are provided during hunting season so make sure you take one out of the box and return it when you go back by. A really good workout with many ups and downs and a well built system of bridges throughout.
