We hiked from Lake Brandt Marina to the greenway on the Wild Turkey trail then back to the marina on the Nathaniel Green trail. We saw a heard of more than 15 deer, but other than that, you just see a lot of trees. Enjoyable morning walk in the woods.

I wanted to complete the loop around Brandt Lake, which I did, using the mountain bike version of this trail. The mountain bike part of the trail is very busy ... although lovely and nice and long ... the walking part of the trail is much shorter (about half the length). Lovely forest. There are a few ups and downs, in the main this is an easy trail for an experienced hiker.

I started at the Old Battleground trailhead, hiked all the way to Lake Brandt Marina, then I used the Wild Turkey Trail to turned around and back to the Old Battleground trailhead for a loop of total 7.3 miles. The Wild Turkey trail was built for mountain biking but I had a good workout for hiking. People on it were very courteous. I was totally enjoyed it.

Awesome, fun trail. Rugged and fast. This trail has everything for all skill levels; climbs, hills, jumps, free ride... A lot of places for you to go fast but rugged enough to get a good workout. Best point of access is the Lake Jeanette Marina. I really enjoyed this ride.

arguably the best mtb trail in the area. reasonable for beginners but challenging enough for more experienced riders as well
