Cool trail. Has trail markers but distances and winding loops around the lake make it difficult to know proximity.

I had a good run on on part of this trail. The trail does meander across one of the parks main roads. I was concerned that apart of the trail is next to a year round hunting area- and there are warning signs about this! I did not feel safe running on that part of the trail.

Like so many trails in the park, it does not offer any great scenery. It parallels roads most of the way, which could be a good thing if you want to bail out early, there are many short connector trails to Panhandle Road. Most of it is gentle up and down with mixed hardwoods. The trail follows the Buggs Island Lake coastline for several miles but I do not remember ever actually seeing the lake from the trail. The trail is pleasant, but just way too long for the punch.
