My rating is for running only. Overall the loop is too short to be awesome for a run and the trails are paved. It gets crowded! However it is lovely for a leisurely stroll.

Great, relaxed walk! Took along one of the dogs too. Wasn’t too heavily trafficked and timed it perfectly to catch the sunset over the lake.

Nice park. Walked the trails, took a picnic and kids hit he beach area and park. Fun afternoon out if you're looking for something to do.

Very nice scenic trail that borders Lake Norman in the town of Cornelius. Great views, nice & easy 1 mile asphalt walking trail. The neighborhood regulars get their daily walk in with their dogs. The park is well maintained and reasonably safe. Easily accessible to restaurants and the highway. Great for an impromptu hike.

Beautiful park! Great for jogging, road biking, and walking. Includes a playground, 8 tennis courts, and waterfront swings. Great view of Lake Norman.

Nice and shaded.

This is more of a walk than a hike. A lot of people were using the trail to walk/run on a weekday morning. It has some nice lake views. Walking the entire trail only takes about 25 mins! I think there is a $3 park entry fee, but if you go outside of park hours you can avoid it (I went at 8am).

Nice easy walk along the water's edge.

A great beginner ride or hike. A must do if you live close by. If you live far you may be disappointed, unless you incorporate it with a visit to the rest of this great lakefront park.
