I did the knob creek trail; one of the longest in the park but so nice. When you get to the ‘loop’ part where the mountain meets the water you can jump in right there... the water feels amazing! In total we hiked 6.6 miles. We asked the ladies inside where to go and they didn’t know much, but on the map it says to park where the horse trailer parking lot is, then hike on the horse connector trail until you come to the “Knob Creek” Trailhead (which is right past the camping grounds) The horse trailer parking lot is about a quarter mile past the main entrance depending on which direction you come from (right near the boat ramp) But while we were walking on the connector trail we went right by the tennis courts which are in the park so there is probably a way to park in the main lot, then just find your way down to the trail.. it would definitely shorten the walk.
Knob creek itself is about 3 miles. But like I said, definitely worth it at the end to take a jump into Cherokee Lake and cool off!
