I started at Jenkins Dam and went to dock 1 and turned around. 6.8 miles. A few fallen trees and some places vegetation was taking over, but considering tail end of summer it was really nice.

Great trail. Started at dock 1 to Burr Oak Cove campground which was 3.8 miles due to a late start. Great views of the lake and wooded setting. Most of the trail is on the edge of the lake therefore the bugs and spider webs were everywhere. The trail to the campground is well traveled but only semi marked, but was worth the uphill journey to get to it. Was a perfect spot for a first solo backpacking trip.

Excellent challenge trails in all weather. Suggest the BTA EGGS annual challenge at this location! Bring water.

Nice trail with a lot of scenic views of the lake. Stopping points along the way are the Tom Jenkins Dam and a boat dock. Length varies by where you start the hike.
