Short loop off of the Sandhills Trail near the dam area. Trail is not marked; easiest way to find it is to look for the large information sign downhill from the Sandhills Trail just west of the dam. Interesting interpretive signs tell about common flora and fauna of the midlands. Overall, a nice add-on if you are hiking the Sandhills Trail.

First to Review

Less crowded trail. Some areas are not well marked but it’s well traveled so it was easy to stay on course. We enjoyed the informational signs.
