Beech Bluff Trail

Length: 0.7 miles, 1.2 miles if you form a loop and return on the road
Type: Hiking Trail
Difficulty: Easy
Description: On this short, hilly, out-and-back dirt path through a quiet forest of pine and oak, you will wind along a ravine and creek, and pass scenic views of Lake Hartwell. As you climb steep terraces constructed by farmers who harvested crops on this land generations ago, watch for snakes, green lizards, squirrels, fox, a variety of birds, and other wildlife amid fern and brightly colored wild flowers. When the trail ends at the park road, you have the option of returning the way you came, or turning right on the paved park road to loop back to the parking area.
