Muddy in January. But bug-free! Great exercise on a nice winter day. Many informative bulletin boards re: animals, birds, and trees on several bridges. Trail well marked. Portapotties open near campstore and kayak launch.

It was a truly fun experience, me and my wife especially love the paddle boating...they were bit squeaky but it was still fun.

Don't trust the location on the map for this trail - it's in Northwest River Park. It's a nice hike, very easy, flat all the way but enough twists and winding bends (and tree roots) to make it interesting. Watch out if it's been raining, this trail floods out in several spots.

Beautiful trail. Had to adjust my navigation from the app, AllTrails put me closer to the city when the trail is actually closer to the North Carolina border. There were also many more options for trails once I got there that extended off the Molly Mitchell trail. I would not recommend running on this trail as there are a lot of exposed roots.

There is an interesting slough. I saw an otter but by the time I got the camera ready he had left. The trail runs through beautiful forest and swamp.
