Nice hike with pretty water views. I enjoyed the fact that it was more of a climbing hike than just walking on flat topography. Very good hike if you wanna wear out the dog!

Nice wooded stroll with plenty of openings to the lake.

Trail was pretty good and well marked. Our 5yo made it but barely. It's quite hilly. Wish this app told you if trail is free or paid as I forgot Jordan Lake requires $7/car.

Completed with two dogs in tow with no issues. Plenty of great views of the lake as well as a little challenge from the steeper portions.

Two loop options- 2.7 and 5.4 miles. Nice elevation changes throughout the hike. Good views of the lake in many places, at least in the winter. Nicely marked trails. Good for dog walking.
