it's not a loop as shown...it is about 3plus miles out to End of trail sign and 3 plus back. nice trail, small inclines, runs all along the lake. beautiful tree cover.

You can start at DSBG or another door about 1.5 miles away. Today I started at DSBG went all the way to trailhead then back around beside the lake and back to BSG. Was a nice easy hike, dome tree roots, but would still keep in Easy category. You have options for a shorter hike by just turning around. Nice lake views. Very pretty. No goats, but fencing was up, so they are there to help with Cudzu

love this trail. beautiful and secluded. have returned several times.

This logged 5.42 for us on Map My Run, and once you get to the pavement take a left then right and walk thru the parking lot to get to Persimmon trail, we didn’t find it that clear once we left the woods.
We hiked on a Saturday mid afternoon and maybe passed 4 people and 1 bike, very nice trail wide enough for most of it to go side by side, love that you can see the water, a few spots to get to the water.
Will go again.

Great for an easy hike! Such a close and beautiful location to get a couple miles in on well maintained trailers. Not a lot of elevation change but you can go a good distance at a quick pace.

If you’re looking for solace this is not the trail for you. There is a lot of noise from nearby roads, boats on the lake, and LOTS of airplanes. The flight patterns go directly over a large portion of this trail. It is muddy as other reviewers have mentioned. Very tropical feeling. The plus side to this trail is the length. If you’re looking for a long walk that isn’t paved then it’s great for that. I would not consider this a scenic trail.

Decent enough; though signage could be a little better. I entrusted my 14 year old to navigate and we got a little lost.

If you just want an easy hike this trail is for you ( and mountain biking). the first half of the trail does get pretty muddy after a heavy rain.

Moderate foot traffic during the week, not sure how it is on the weekend yet.

Easy. 6 mile round trip. Wooded walk along Lake Wylie. Muddy in some spots. Combine this trail with the trails at Daniel Stowe Botanical to get the most mileage. Maybe, I'll do it again in the Fall. 2 stars.

Moderate hike with views of Lake Wylie

Very nicely kept trail with good views and a good 5 mile relatively flat hike.

Always pretty. Good if you're not feeling up to a strenuous hike.

Very dog friendly!

Beautiful quiet walk with nice views of Lake Wylie. Short drive from south Charlotte.

Very nice trail. 5.7 miles to the end of trail and back.

Great views and ride for the bike!

Beautiful trail, great breeze off the lake and a couple beach areas for the dog to cool off. I definitely recommend this hike, its and easier trail so great for runners and walkers.

Thumbs up! Really fun trail to bike on.

Thumbs up for this trail. It was allot of fun!

Great 2 hour hike. Trail goes right by Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens. Plenty of views of Lake Wylie. We saw a black snake and 2 large deer on this hike.

Very nice, clear, shaded path the whole trail. Nice views of the lake. Stumbled upon a black snake on the way back crossing over the trail. Will definitely be back to hike year round.

Light traffic, quiet, lots of wild life, pretty views around the lake area. Watch out for snakes.

Watch out if it's Summer. There's a pond there so animals would be around. There's actually some rattlesnakes there on the trail so be careful and keep an eye out. the hike is great and very easy.

Nice walk along the lake and not heavily used.

Easy, but healthy walk. I started at the Botanical Gardens parking lot.

Easy, quiet walk and beautiful in the fall.

Very nice easy hike. Few trail runners. Lots of folks with dogs. A bit muddy in spots, but overall well maintained. Pretty trail along a lake.

This was a nice easy hike! Map is all wrong on here... So you can't check-in on the app.

Great family hike. Easy and clear paths, well maintained and ready to use!
