Nice, easy trail suitable for the whole family. Like others have said, there are some areas with a lot of trash, but still a nice walk in the woods. Check closely for ticks afterwards as my wife found several seed ticks on her legs.

I am helping to host guided trail hikes at this site. Please check Coldwater River Nature Conservancy website for sign-up!

Beautiful and well-maintained. Will definitely return, but with a couple of garbage bags! Clearly floods on occasion and there’s a variety of lake trash washed up in places. What a beautiful resource in hernando!

Pleasantly surprised at how nice this trail is. They have recently built a new pavilion and it looks like there are plans to keep improving it. Lots of wildflowers, which made for butterflies everywhere. A really enjoyable hike!

This is a short loop around the baseball diamond at Eudora Community Park. It's nice that it is paved, making for a quick walk, run, or easy bike ride. Dog friendly too, so I bring my dogs here quite often.

This is a 6-foot wide paved trail that circles the Eudora Community Park. A portion of the trail is shaded. One section is shared with the other loop trail in the park. To connect this as a loop you will need to cross the parking lot and pick up the trail on the other side, however the trails are lightly used and there should be no issues with doing so.

First Fogg Road is closed so had to detour around. The hike was nice short hike. Lots of spider webs across the trail. A log was down and across the trail at about 1 mile, but was easy to route around.

Pros- Short and can be walked in under an hour easily. It's easy enough that most kids could do it without a problem so it'd be a nice family activity. It's also not very busy. I went on an absolute perfect day for hiking, and I was the only one there. The trail is beautiful and very well taken care of in most places. Overall, it's a nice little trail.

Cons- There is a little bit of trash in some areas, but not enough to really distract from the beauty of the trail. You can also hear the highway towards the beginning of the trail so it can be hard to get that 'secluded in nature' feel, but the sound goes away as you go farther along the path.

Walked this trail on Saturday. It's very nice and easy. Didn't see much wildlife, unfortunately. Will try again in the future.

This is a wonderful Trail. Where it lacks in size it makes up in beauty and convenience. Just a Ten minute drive from Hernando, parking at the trail head and benches along the path. This would be a nice place for a picnic! Oh, and I see deer just about every time I hike this trail.

The cons. This trail, like all trails can get washed out in certain spots after a heavy rain. And though i haven't seen any snakes in the two years i've been hiking here be aware that there is a good chance they are around especially close to the lake.

This is a great short trail. Roughly 50ft per mile worth of climbing and well marked. There are educational signs and boards. So nice just for a time crunch outdoor activity with a few geocache to add as a bonus too.

Great trail. Went back next day and did 2 miles. Will love it when lake comes back up.

it is a reserve, so no dogs allowed. it was nice short hike other than that.

Has the potential to be a nice little hike, needs more work but I see equipment out there so I believe it's in progress.
Maybe a raised deck walkway toward the water where the lake debris litters the trail? Good scout project!!

This trail is a joke. Who ever started turning this into a nature center is definitely behind. There is trash through out. At one point my son and I followed until we ended up on very unclear path. We had to cross brush that we couldnt tell what we were walking on. I will never come back to this trail.

It was an easy trail. It took us maybe 45 minutes and we weren't walking fast. The lake had flooded some of the areas so we had to walk through the woods until we could get back on the trail, but it was fun.

First trail experience. I had a 7 and 9 year old with me and they did great.

This nature trail was brief but quite beautiful; it was a great spot to sprint back through for a second trip around the trail.

The trailhead is near the Arkabutla dam...highway 301 west is north of the lake; follow it west until you see signs for the Arkabutla dam. Happy trails.

This was a great trail for our family. We had to leave our dog at home though, no dogs allowed here.
