Very mild terrain, asphault the whole way. beautiful scenery! Perfect for a beginner. A couple singletrack trails along the way for mountainbikers. friendly people. Very anticlimatic ending. relatively long. Only 1 water station after about mile 1, delicious water though!

A nice, peaceful oasis tucked away in the heart of built up Fayetteville. We saw some beautiful wildlife (an eastern racer that startled my wife). Keep in mind that it is $10 a person for entry. Quite large considering the surrounding built up area. They also have quite a few events throughout the month.

Overall, a fun afternoon excursion.

Great improved trail for running and casual walks. Offers unique scenery in the heart of built up Fayetteville. Provides good changes in elevation to challenge running and biking excursions.

This is not a legitimate trail. It has been fenced off because it was/is on private property. There is however a park down the road with a short trail around it.

It's open, it was also a great day to go, though.

Lake Rim Trail is open and quiet till you get near 401 at the tar kilns then the traffic noise is loud from 401! Easy hike but I spent the walk picking up trash that was on the ground while I walked with my dog and kids.
