Beautiful trail, great breeze off the lake and a couple beach areas for the dog to cool off. I definitely recommend this hike, its and easier trail so great for runners and walkers.

Great 2 hour hike. Trail goes right by Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens. Plenty of views of Lake Wylie. We saw a black snake and 2 large deer on this hike.

Very nice, clear, shaded path the whole trail. Nice views of the lake. Stumbled upon a black snake on the way back crossing over the trail. Will definitely be back to hike year round.

Light traffic, quiet, lots of wild life, pretty views around the lake area. Watch out for snakes.

I need some clarification, is the trail a continuous loop or does it end at the fence rails. I never saw a marker indicating the end of the trail and kept going and came up on the back side of Daniel Stowe. The map at the top of Alltrails.com shows a loop
