Well-maintained, well-marked peninsula loop trail in the U.S. Fish and Wildlife’s Big Sandy Unit. The 2 mile main circuit is paved with crushed gravel. Several benches and nature interpretive markers along the way. An unpaved 0.5 mile spur (1 mile r/t) leads to a Tennessee River overlook. Lots of gentle ups-and-downs to keep the HR semi-elevated. A classic “woods on one side, water on the other” hike. Good winter views. A couple big fallen trees that require minor detours. ***HUNTING CLOSURES*** This trail is closed on the weekends and a few weekdays during fall bow/gun seasons (late September thru mid November).

Great trail with views of the lakes/rivers. Not sure if it’s the season or there hasn’t been a hiker out here in awhile... but spiderwebs. Lots and lots of spiderwebs. For some that might be an issue. If it starts this way for you, turn around as the whole trail is spiderwebs in the face!

I road this back before they put gravel threw the main loop path. Starting it off going right on a bike is preferred by me as you get to enjoy a little more down hill in my opinion

Well maintained. Short hike close to home.

Love this trail. Close to home, very well maintained and extremely well marked. Loop is 2 miles with an optional out and back extension for a total 3 mile hike on varying terrain and surface.
