One of the better options close to Charlotte. Solid hike, but nothing too memorable. Perfect outing if you live in charlotte and don't want to drive too far.

This is part of the extensive Latta Plantation Nature Preserve trail system. Parking next to the nature center at the entrance, I hiked the Hill, Cove and Split Rock Trails for just over five miles. The Hill Trail is wide and is often shared with horses from the equestrian center. The Cove Trail loops through the woods, getting you close to the lake in several places. The trail is filled with small rocks. I had to be careful with all the leaves on the ground. The split Rock Trail also gets you close to the water, and is not nearly as rocky. I really enjoyed the combination of trails on a beautiful fall day.
