Great hike. Between the view and the bridges it was a wonderful day in the wood.

Nice easy trail, not a lot of great views but the trail does wind down to the lake a few times. 2 suspension bridges - would be fun for older kiddos.

Very nice hike with beautiful lake views, suspension bridges and enough up and down ravines for a workout. Missed one sharp turn on the trail and we weren't the only ones. If you miss the turn you will be on pavement. Backtrack a short distance and pick up the trail going right down a ravine. We combined this with the Marble trail for a very nice hike just under 4 miles total.

It's great for a family outing. I enjoyed this trail and seen a doe just off the trail. It's hardtop. It leads to the Ray branch trail. So get out there and enjoy it.
Thank you Winchester, Tn.

Trails were nice but not well marked. I got lost quiet a few times and I'm an advanced hiker.

Moderate trail. Two nice swinging bridges make enjoyable hike. Overlook closer to two miles down the trail. Occasionally see deer near the trail. Lakeshore trail begins at overlook but is not as well maintained. Trailhead at visitors center parking lot. Good half-day hike at Tim's Ford State Park near Winchester TN.

Nice trail for those taking children. Easy to follow path alongside lake with plenty of diversions. Enjoyed the swinging bridges. Took this trail in the fall and only saw a few others. The up and down trail did not seem very taxing, even for children , but seemed longer than the distance posted. Got off the path for some of the best spots and scenery. Did not see the creek , I guess the name fits.

Trail begins @ end of lost creek overlook trail or can be accessed by taking paved path to the overlook end. Quiet hike along tims ford lake for half the trip then mostly uphill through the woods for the return. The paved access path returns you to the parking area with an excess of "rest areas" which consist of wooden benches. There are a few caged birds to see near parking area which I assume were rescued and could not be returned to the wild. Would be comfortable letting kids take point on this one.

Went with a friend and seven kids ages 4 - 13 and we all had a good time. Next time we will add in the 1.2 mile Marble Plains loop.
