Completed the Old Pine, Acorn and Sassafras trails in a loop just under 3.5 miles, (Parking Lot - A - B - C - G - F - D - C - D - E - Parking Lot, see hiking map in photos). All trails were in great shape with no mud and no overgrown vegetation. There are a couple nice inclines throughout but not very difficult. The only issue we found was when we arrived in the campground on old pine it looks like the trail continues on the other side of the road but it soon becomes non-existent. It is better to just follow the road which ends right at Point B. There is also a 1.5 mile trail around the lake that also connects with a .5 mile loop around the island. I will be coming back later in the year to complete these.

Perfect family hike trail. It is easy, so don’t go expecting a major challenge, but that is what makes it fun with kids. We really like it.

Great trail to take dogs on. Some fallen trees, but nothing hard to get around. This was our second time on this trail. Some elevation, but the average person can hike this easily.

Depending on which way you go, it starts or ends at the end of the RV parking area, snakes up one side of a hill, crests the hill and descends the other side to end at another trail along a small stream that trickles down to the lake. There was a bench along the trail if you'd like to have a sit. Of course, the scenery consists of woods and hills.

Easy hike. Weeds are bad in spring and summer at the beginning of trail.
