I started from the parking area by the Main Lodge at the Summit Environmental Education Center and combined the two short loops for an easy 2.5 mile hike. Be sure to take the .4 mile River Overlook spur off the Piedmont Loop. It is mostly boardwalk and takes you through the wetlands to the edge of the Haw River. With the tremendous amount of rain we have had recently, it made for a unique and beautiful walk over the water. From there, you pass through an oak-hickory forest and a successional field, before ending up by the 6-acre Robins Nest Lake.
