Short walk around the mill pond with little to see except the Mill. It’s a nice walk in a n afternoon or evening when you have little time. When you have more time plan to visit the very nice exhibit.

Dogs are NOT allowed on this trail!

Love this place. Easy trail with beautiful views

It's a good running trail.I really enjoy it

Great "hidden" trail that I've never heard of until AllTrails. Yes, the trail is a little overgrown and there's alot of forks in the road so it's easy to get lost, so keep your app handy to make sure you're on the right track. But other than that, this is beautiful and scenic, with nice vegetation and some cool animals - I saw a GIGANTIC bird of prey (maybe an owl?) and a few cute caterpillary things. Plus the trail is super quick - you can do it in 30-45 minutes, perfect for a lunch break walk.

Beautiful fall morning walk on an asphalt trail. We did about 5 miles from the beginning to Crabtree Valley Mall. Great for biking, walking, running.

Great short hike. Wonderfully shaded for hot days.

I liked this trail. We chose it because it was baby stroller friendly for my grandson. However, I would rate it easy to moderate because although it’s paved, there were many steep inclines. So if you’re not used to inclines, don’t do the whole loop.

Pretty flat and not too many roots at the beginning. The elevation and tougher ground starts around the loop and it was a fun length! Good start to a day

Not hard at all. Mostly paved. It would be much better of a challenge for biking. Close to the road for a good portion

As advertised: short but sweet! Signs along the way give info on native trees, which I found very interesting.

Too muddy felt like quick mud

on Lake Lynn Trail

We had been at Lake Lynn Trail twice! One with our pup (each dog we encountered had a leash and dog owners were courteous) Yesterday was our take #2. Right now, hit the lake after 5:30pm, you’ll not regretted (the majority of it is shaded) It is well marked, great for families, just to have a nice stroll after dinner, or just to hike while watching the beauty of the lake (and birds) It is an easy hike.

One of my favorites.

It's a nice paved path. I only did a small section between Anderson and Lassiter mill but it's quite nice. A little muddy after all our rain but very shady.

Nice trail. Busy foot traffic. Well marked.

Really comfortable, less crowded mulch trail

nice trail with slight incline for a moderate workout. good for a technical trail run. alot is by a creek making for nice scenery

Rolling terrain. Stop at Big Lake at the power-line, really nice. Not a difficult trail at all, roots and rocks. No big steep climbs. Piedmont hike. Good to run or walk. Wear sturdy shoes.

Good little trail to get you going
