A lot of trash- literally and figuratively. The beautiful lake views are tarnished by the sounds of loud and obnoxious humanity coming from the lake, and- to a lesser extent- the bottles and other trash that's been washed ashore. This will be a nice hike after the plague.

Long Hunter State Park is my go to park. I enjoy this hike through Cedar Barrens, avoid it on the weekends since it IS Mountain Bike Trail. I have NEVER seen bikers there during the week.

Great trail along the Percy Priest reservoir. Cedar glades and hardwoods. Canopy keeps one cooler in hot weather. Some ignorant dog owners don't clean up their animal's mess which is disappointing given the park provides bags for that purpose.

Me and my 3 best friends took a weekend to go backpacking and stay in the primitive site #1. It right up against the water and we LOVED it. Everything was clean and the fire pit was huge. Just remember there is no water or electricity so make sure to bring a water filter. It's not an easy hike but totally worth it. It actually ends up being 13 miles not 11. I would love to do this trail again in the fall!

Great trail for dogs; I take my pups there about once a month and they love it!

beautiful vistas of the lake there arent. you can kind of see the lake through a heavy growth of trees but i would hardly call it scenic. that said.... the beginning loop is nice with a wide variety of trees and succulents. the trail is mostly in the shade but there are a few open sunny spots. i saw a pair of wild turkeys on my return loop here. i would recommend the first part of the trail but skip the loop to bald knob.
