Nice trail... this was my first bike in about 3 years so it was slightly more difficult than expected. Has some nice downhill to get some speed but some heavily rooted areas moving up. All in all good ride.

My first hike in years .. great experience but lots of bugs because of the lake

good trail...I usually hit this twice a year when I do the Greensboro trails tour...a but "rooty" in some areas but all in all good "flowy" trail...got some good pump sections that you can really get ripping on...

My new favorite trail. Has everything - lake view, deep shade for hot days, berms, pump parts, all single track, technical challenges but not impossible, well groomed. Ride up on green way to Wild Turkey trail for more miles of single track. Awesome for Mtn biking!

Great trail for biking and plenty of shaded areas. We even get to stop by an ice cream shop ‘Ozzie Ice Cream shop’ right off the trail.

Very good mixed terrain for hiking. Mountain Bikers were very friendly and gave ample warning of their presence. Looking forward to hiking it again during the summer.

Done this trail 100 plus times..great for hiking or running..very easy..a couple of small hills..just wish Greensboro could afford to put trash cans at least at the trail ends..i wouldn't expect the highly motivated city employees to empty them(maybe the City could contract that out..like mowing city owned grass)..but that would be nice.

Just walked it for first time. Great views , lakes not heavily used.

Nice trail but be prepared to move aside for the bikes. Everyone was nice and appreciative of us moving so no issues. I do feel the signage could be better. It appears there are a few trails and we didn't see a sign for Owls Roost. We must have looked lost and a nice biker asked what we were looking for and gave directions. Once on the trail, it was great!

Not really a "trail". It's paved all around the loop but there are some trail sections. Best part, it connects to Military Park so it's 2 for 1.

A great trail! As a beginner I would recommend to proceed with caution.
I hopped in a little fast. This being my second trail ride ever.

Great Trail. Exception is the trail should have more trail markers.

A real nice hike!
Water views, a deer almost ran into us which was cool, and I love the pine tree forest on the second half of the trail.

Fun ride, there are some tight area, but overall enjoyable!

Trail is a good hike. Little surprised to see about 20% of it as black top. Lot of mountain bikes.

I'm no stranger to trails and nature. I drew the line around .25mi in when my 2 year old and I were viciously attacked by a million mosquitoes. It was an ambush. It was as if I had walked into a bug spray testing chamber. My daughter has over 20 (no exaggeration) mosquito bites on her face, arms, back, and legs. We went across the street to the Piedmont trail with no issue. I'm guessing it had something to do with the wetlands. Not going back here until it is cold out!

Took my furbaby for a nice hike fellow people we super nice about biking or running by us. One issue we had was getting back to the car was a little confusing due to having short cuts and signs for most turns but not all. Part of the loop we did was paved. Good hike either way.

I mountain biked for the first time on this trail with relative ease. Note there are a handful of spots that tend to be muddy on this trail. Many people jog here and bring dogs off leash, so be careful when speeding around corners.

We hiked from Lake Brandt Marina to the greenway on the Wild Turkey trail then back to the marina on the Nathaniel Green trail. We saw a heard of more than 15 deer, but other than that, you just see a lot of trees. Enjoyable morning walk in the woods.

This trail has several water views and mountain bikes. Nothing to worry about, they're very courteous.

I wanted to complete the loop around Brandt Lake, which I did, using the mountain bike version of this trail. The mountain bike part of the trail is very busy ... although lovely and nice and long ... the walking part of the trail is much shorter (about half the length). Lovely forest. There are a few ups and downs, in the main this is an easy trail for an experienced hiker.

Nice and paved.

I've hiked, ran and mountain biked this trail. One of my favorites when trying to get a quick workout in. Nice mix of hills and flats, even on a short loop. Beautiful views of the lake, a couple creeks and a good connector to the greenway and other trails nearby for a longer workout. Not super secluded (driving range, park office, multiple playgrounds and greenway nearby) so I feel pretty safe on this trail. (I always recommend taking pepper-spray into the woods or on a multi-use trail!)
