Nice paved greenway. This measures trail is half way to one of the ends but if you wanted to go farther you could just go to the other end.

50 degrees, saw some archers, was wet - as expected. Water was high from recent rains.

Really pretty trail. Definitely not as well marked as it should be. But easy to stay on track since you’re just looping the lake. Hike itself is really easy with only a couple inclines. Really great for beginners. Takes two or three hours to complete the loop.

Paved, tree-lined.

Great place for a jog or a walk. Nice views and usually a peaceful place.

Not a bad trail, well trafficked, good scenery.

The trail was great! I started at the trail head at Kohl’s, went to the Dam and back. I was so glad to see restrooms at the dam. LOL there was a lot of traffic but not terrible. Lots of joggers, bikers and lots of dogs (all unleashes). I had tried this one earlier in the year but it was closed due to flooding. It was nice to be able to do the whole trek.

Nothing too exciting. Very long and flat without much of a change of scenery. Great for trail running or a quick hike.

This was a great hike! My 8 year old daughter thoroughly enjoyed herself, and the falls were beautiful!!

Beautiful hike along the French Broad River. Many birds and deer to see. Most reviews written in summer complained of conditions (too hot, sunny, bugs, etc.) however early December was perfect weather. Just not much foliage to look at. Although, in my opinion, made for better viewing. All in all, would recommend.

Not “moderate” it’s “easy”. All paved. Some steep spots if using wheelchair or baby carriage.

We started at the end of the trail beside Kohl’s and walked approximately 1 mile out and back. Trail was easy walking for us and the 4 year old. Stroller was easy to push. Saw many turtles in the river, some squirrels, a large salamander and tons of birds and butterflies. Unfortunately, we also passed a few questionable people carrying open containers drinking and this made us ( two women walking with children) uncomfortable so we haven’t gone back.

Very nice short and easy trail for an afternoon hike.

Nice longish out and back but mostly flat. Some views and noise from the lake in the summer. Excited to find prickly pear and some interesting geology. Mostly forested but some exposed sections. Encountered less than a dozen people on trail. Saw some deer and black vultures. Swimming area at the end of the trail was crowded, long wait for bathrooms. Approached by a creep while eating alone at the picnic tables. Packed up and left.

Not many markings along the route, trust the blue marks on the trees and yourself.

A very scenic paddle trip within thousands of acres of protected land. Technical skills are required to navigate some the twists and turns through the trees. This is not for the first time paddler.

Nice trail. Easy with a few small hills. There is some airplane noise but overall a very nice trail. We will definitely go back.
