The red trail is a good challenging trail with many hills.

Easy walk, great for kids. The park is on Old Lynchburg Rd south of intersection with Red Hill Rd, not where the marker shows it to be.

Walnut creek park is wonderful for flatwater kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, and disc golf. I would rate it 4 stars, but this marker is located nowhere near the park. The actual park is located about 15 miles south of this marker.

Lots of wooded trails. They have maps of the trails there. Once we hot the woods we never saw another person. A couple of old home sites along the trails. Hills and rocks in many places. Beautiful lake!
