Trails

Caney Fork Falls Trail

Length: 1.3 miles out and back trail

Type: Hiking Trail

Difficulty: Easy

Description: You will begin this easy, 1.3-mile out and back trail behind the boathouse, located at the back of the parking lot, and wind alongside the lake in Chester State Park. The trail yields several excellent fishing locations along the shoreline of the 160-acre lake, which is stocked with bass, crappie, bream, and catfish. Rental fishing boats are available and boat ramp area for private boats, which is limited to hand power or electric trolling motors. You will reach the turnaround point at the dam, where you can stop to rest and enjoy the sound of water falling over the spillway.
