Nice trail. None of the bridges were actually closed.

the trail stops at about half the length as advertised on the app. so only about 0.3 miles till you have to turn back. the trail itself is beautiful with great views...just thought it would be longer.

Good day , Chris and girl friend, Hillie and Dale with his dog in a canoe. Day started off good got to the lake and went to the other side where the boat ramp is. We paddled into a slight breeze. On the way back the wind was at our back but was blowing. Very choppy. About a two thirds of the back across the lake, Dale and the dog went in, water temp about 50-55. Canoe barely floating. Dog freaking out in the water. Very tricky to get back to him. Everybody on him. Chris and girl friend grab dale and canoe and paddle back towards the shoreline. We’re about a mile away from that. Dale stayed in the water until we got him back the the shore. Hillie and myself take the dog, Hillie had a Pungo 120 open cockpit so the dog is in his boat. He can’t paddle because of the dog so I tow him back to the opening going back in the canal. I drop him off there, he continues to paddle to the camp ground and I head back out to assist with dale getting back to the shoreline. Once there we flip the canoe over and dale gets in and we paddle to the campground. Once there everybody helps dale with dry clothes and then we all head back to the trucks. Me and dale pull away get back first only to see when the rest of the gang gets there that girlfriend also went swimming. Her kayak road up a stump and in she went. All in all everybody was okay.

Definitely not a walk on the wild side. Flip-flops would be appropriate footwear on this trail. Lots of trees but no access, the trail is completely paved, no red mud anymore.

Great mini trail with tiny humans. Two year old made it all the way through and enjoyed the docks to look over at the water.

We loved this easy trail along the lake. Lots of place to sit and watch geese and ducks. Our dogs loved it, too.

Dogs must be kept on a leash. Allot of people on the trail. Areas of the trail are paved and pretty but there is a large portion just red clay mud and another part where your walking on streets with residential homes...doesn't really feel like a "hike through the woods".

We enjoyed the Civil War historical portion of this hike and the wonderful views of nature around the lake and golf course. We saw lots of deer, ducks, geese, squirrels, and other wildlife. The lake was perfectly clear and like a mirror! We will be returning here to explore more of the park.

??? NOT A HIKE

There was no hiking trail here. It was quite a drive to get to this location, and I was very disappointed that all there was was an overlook where you could see the lighthouse in the distance in the bay. It would be great for kayaking or any other water activity, but I could find no hiking trail at all. I would remove this trail from the listing.

Very nice! Scenic views of the lake!

Trail is poorly marked and there isn’t much to see. The bridge is cool but very run down. This could be a great area if the county put some time and money into it.

Great fall weather trail with trees turning colors and views of the Potomac River. Moderate but reasonable activity on trail.

I’m from Columbia SC. Finding this trail was a true blessing. If you’re familiar with Harbison Forest this trail is reminiscent of Firebreak.

There was a lot of road noise at the beginning from I64 and a good portion of the middle was out in the open and on a hot day you will feel it. Overall it is a good trail and you do see wildlife.

Rode my Mountain Bike, 5 miles in, 5 miles out ... not pleasant, lots of roots, very hilly, too many sandy areas. hard to enjoy the ride. The good part is that it's well marked, quiet, and lots of shade.

Since I was here for work and am an avid hiker, I wanted to see what was around. So I came upon this nice little gem. Did almost all the trails at this location. Very easy, the main trail is well maintained and very enjoyable. Great place to go if you are looking just to get out for a nice walk. The side trails are clearly marked. However, there is a lot of roots and if you're clumsy, you can easily trip. Not a whole lot of elevation. Now I did this trail in Late September, so it wasn't brutally hot, and there is TONS of shade. Bugs were almost nonexistent, and some spiderwebs on the smaller side trails, but not too bad. If you're in the area and just want to get out, definitely come here.

This app says that this is a trail running spot, but there are signs saying "no jogging". Otherwise, awesome place! It's beautiful and easy:)
