Wooded hike along wet land area with many chances of seeing local wildlife. The Laurel Bluff/Reedy Fork Loop trail is actually made up of two trails. The proposed trail head located at the Greensboro Water works is the western most trail head for the Laurel Bluff trail. You will follow this trail 3.2 miles to the eastern trail head. Then follow the road to the left (north) crossing the bridge, turn left on Plainfield Road and continue until you reach the eastern trail head for Reedy Fork trail (another .8 miles). From here you have another 3.2 miles to reach the western trail head of Reedy Fork & by following the road to the left over the Lake Brandt spill way, to the original starting point. Laurel Bluff is closed to bikes but Reedy Fork is open to bikes. Both are open to pets on leashes. Be aware that during periods of high rain or water release from the dam, areas of both trails can be flooded. If you are quiet and lucky you will have the chance to see a multitude of wildlife from birds, reptiles, small mammals to even white tail deer.

Great loop between Lake Brandt and Lake Townsend. Nice mix of hills and flats. Beavers frequently around Reedy fork side near Lake Brandt

This "loop" is very nice. A well maintained trail, with parking along Lake Brandt Rd, and near city facilities at the marina. Hiked this early February, weather cool, sunny, all leaves off the trees. Great time of year to do that, no bugs. This is an easy afternoon or early morning hike for an experienced hiker. There are some small climbs. No toilet facilities.

This loop was closer to 10 miles than 7 but a great way to spend the morning!
