Enter behind the archery range on the north side of the park. Easy-to-follow trail includes one short stretch down a blacktop road then reentry into the woods about 50 yards down.

Awesome trail. Has a lot of roots and have to be careful when wet.

Did a birthday hike on the green trail Saturday. Beautiful day and saw only 2 others on my 2 hour hike. The markers allude to a 7 mile hike....perhaps its 7km but it's definitely NOT 7 miles. Easy hike and is probably the best kept secret around. Lake has a small shop you can get drinks/bait at. Enjoy.

Great trail! Only issue we(2 dogs and myself) had were the ticks. The ticks were out in full force! They are pretty bad this year on every hike we have done in the Memphis area. Other than that this trail is well marked (Thanks Cub Scouts) and some fallen trees were all cleared from the path.

The trails are in great shape well marked. Took BSA TROOP 95 there this weekend to finish off the hiking badge.

Nicely groomed, well marked, easy hike. Great views with some traffic. We walked the green trail.

4 star only because scenery is good to great, not amazing.

Well maintained and marked trail except the yellow jacket nest/hole on the edge of trail around 4 miles in from the right side of the lake. Definitely a high tick area also. Not sure mileage is accurate but enjoyed not being able to hear the highway for 3 hours. Nice stopping points and views of the lake.
