Bring bug spray! The loop trail is simple and easy to follow, you can’t get lost. There are lots of access points to the lake and bathrooms at the trailhead. There is a fishing pier. The path is clear with lots of tree roots. I went on a Monday around 7pm, there were about 8 other groups out on the trail and enjoying the shore line. Made it around the loop in less than 30 minutes walking at a leisurely place. Saw a few people walking dogs and fishing. There are picnic tables and grills all around the loop, and a covered pavilion at the trail head. Parking is paved with 30ish spots. A majority of the trail is flat forest ground, some paved.

So much of this is for hiking or horses. The hiking only parts are great but the parts shared with horses is gravel which just an annoying walk as if it’s a gravel road. If they would just scrape a path beside the gravel sections it would be great. The feel and noise from a gravel road just don’t cut it

Aptly named and so beautiful. I wish I lived here so I could walk these trails all the time.

Great trails with lots of shade!

The trail is a combination of gravel, tennis size rocks and earth. Mostly shaded. Bring bug spray. Lake views.

Great place to go run trails. I did the hill trail and tacked on the cove trail for 5.5 miles. Got a little turned around coming back but hard to get really lost. Mostly there is tree cover but be aware there’s no tree cover for a good portion of the hill trail!

Easy hike but very pretty and peaceful. Amazing greenery and the lake was nice.

Beautiful trail

Hiked this trail on New Year’s Day. The temp was in the low thirties, and we hardly saw any one else out there. Not challenging with regards to hills, but ground leaf cover did hide many loose baseball sized rocks that made me keep eyes down for stretches. Lake was beautiful, the woods were quiet and peaceful. We will go back in the spring to see how the park changes. GPS measured the hike at 5.5 miles.

This is the perfect thanksgiving day walk location it's easy and along the lake. If you're looking for a local place to get outside this is nice but it is not a great hiking place. Very popular. Not challenging. gravel paths

There are several trials here. I chose Hill trial and it is good for jogging. Worth trying

Easy trail for all levels. Be sure to take the second loop that runs along the lake.

Very scenic trail, lots of opportunities to stop for a minute and take the beautiful lake Catawba.

I was looking for a trail for a short run while staying in Huntersville. This hit the spot. Looks like it is predominantly for mountain bikers but I didn't come across any at 7:00 p.m. It was within 24 hours of a rain though and bikers shouldn't be there right after a rain. The trail has plenty of ups and downs but is completely runnable. The sign at the trailhead says it is 3.5 miles long but my Garmin registered less than 3. Could have made a wrong turn though.

My first hike in the Charlotte area and it was great! My girlfriend and I took our 5 month old puppy on the 3 mile hike. There was very minimal elevation changes, but nice green trees all around, small running creek, and multiple small wooden bridges.

I would say we're slightly above average hikers, but this "easy" course was a great starter near us.

Watch out for the mountain bikers as there is a lot of blind corners. Also of note. There's a lot of soccer fields, basketball courts, softball fields, and tennis courts so feel free and bring extra equipment to have a fun filled day.

P.S. The park is FREE to enter

Nice scenic short trail that outlines the peninsula in Latta Plantation Park. The trail is woody, with great views of Lake Catawba. Do this trail with your children and bring your fishing pole if you have a little time. Nice place for a short day hike.

There are many different trails to do here, we did the advertised track. The hill trail portion of this is meh, but the cove and split rock portions were great. lots of rocks, but very fun and nice along the lake. Watch out for horse poop.

Really nice trail for beginners like me, but challenging enough to give you a good work out.

One of the better options close to Charlotte. Solid hike, but nothing too memorable. Perfect outing if you live in charlotte and don't want to drive too far.
