I love this trail, though I have never done the whole thing. I usually park on Lake Brandt and hike a couple miles in before turning around. As others have stated, it's easy, but it does have a couple of hills here and there.

Easy but very nice trail. There are beautiful views of the lake and spots where you can sit beside it and relax. Someone said something about a hammock which is a wonderful idea!

Nice..very easy to do. Although..i have noticed since coming here..people don't pay much attention to leash laws for their dogs..anyway very cool trail..people who let their dogs run free..not so much.

A great afternoon/weekend trail for getting a few miles in and enjoying the weather. Very shady in the summertime. Lovely views of the lake throughout most of the trail. Not technically very challenging, but a few minor elevation changes. Will probably bring my camping hammock and some lunch next time! About 2hrs at leisurely pace

On a Thursday morning, I hiked this one-way from Lake Brandt Road to the Greenway, and then went South on the Greenway. This is an easy trail for an experienced hiker. Saw eight people on the length of the trail, two runners, six hikers.

Love adding this trail to the Big Loop and Greenway when I'm wanting some extra miles. Super flat and really pretty views of the lake. A neighborhood lines about half of the trail.
