This trail is very nice. Perfect for a good walk,it has lake,woodland and swamp views. It's also a great connector to get to other trails if you want to get some real distance...I highly recommend it.

Love this trail it has pretty woods and beautiful wildlife it's got enough up and down hills that makes it a small challenge. Yes there is a good amount of people on it but I view that as a safer trail for a female (or anybody) to run on incase anything we're to happen biggest downside is the roots from the trees, it's a trail you definitely have to pick your feet up on because take it from me you WILL trip

Rather busy trail, but a nice connector between Sycamore Creek and Fire Swamp, that's great stuff!

I love this trail, but it can be busy on a nice day. It crosses the reservoir on a wooden bridge and later up at the swamp end on another wooden bridge. Besides running across the lake and along it, passing historic earthworks, it runs through beautiful forrest.
