There is room for 4-5 cars on Old Battleground trailhead. Lots of parking and facilities at Lake Brandt Marina trailhead.

This was a nice long hike to the Marina and back. Rugged terrain but very peaceful except for the squirrels:) The markers were on point! I would definitely do it again!

We hiked from Lake Brandt Marina to the greenway on the Wild Turkey trail then back to the marina on the Nathaniel Green trail. There are several water views and the trail is easy to complete.

Nice hiking trail with moderate elevations. Beautiful trees and squirrels everywhere. Plenty of benches for resting if needed.

Very nice trail with nice views of the lake. I saw a couple of Great Blue Herons at the edge of the water. There are a couple of steeper inclines but they are short.

Another favorite in the Bur-Mill area. Part of the Mountains to Sea trail. I've hiked this trail from the trailhead at the Marina and from the other side at the trailhead off of Old Battleground Ave. A pretty small parking area off of Old Battleground but I've never had a problem landing a spot. Can't go wrong starting at either trailhead. Really well maintained and nice views of the lake. Rolling hills with some flats. I also like it because it's just for hikers. Even though I love mountain biking too, this is a nice trail for those looking to enjoy walking without being hardcore "on the look out".

I started at the Old Battleground trailhead, hike all the way to Lake Brandt Marina, then followed the Wild Turkey Trail and back to the Old Battleground trailhead. The loop was 7.3 miles. I enjoyed scenery and tranquility of the trails.
