Trails

Beaver Run Trail

Length: 2.5 miles

Type: Hiking and Mountain Biking Trail

Description: At the post and rail fence, begin this gently-rolling, hiking/biking, out-and-back trail that winds along the scenic lake shore. You will zig-zag and switch-back on a single-track dirt path that traverses ditches and streams. Biking challenges include roots, rocks, close trees, occasional sinkholes and other minor trail hazards. As you pass beneath the shade of pine and oak woods, watch of a variety of birds, snakes and other wildlife. The trail ends near the skeet shooting area where you can return the way you came.

Lakeview Loop Trail

Length: 7.2 miles

Type: Hiking and Mountain Biking Trail

Description: From the post and rail fence near the kiosk, begin this scenic and challengingly rugged, hiking-biking, single-track, dirt loop-trail. You won’t find any long climbs here, but other challenges include close trees, steep slopes, rough ruts, roots, and rocks. Experts may not be overly challenged, but all levels of riders will get a good workout. You will traverse an amazing variety of habitats including cedar and hardwood ridges, young oak woods, towering pine stands, and open grassy inlets. As you ascend to peaceful, high points overlooking beautiful lake vistas, or descend to quiet, sandy, back coves along the lake shore, watch for birds, deer, snakes, and other wildlife. During the warm summer months there is a cool breeze from the lake and access to the water for a swim.

Turkey Ridge Loop Trail

Length: 1.7 miles

Type: Hiking and Mountain Biking Trail

Description: At the post and rail fence, begin this twisting, rolling, hiking/biking, single track, dirt, loop trail through mixed pine and hardwood forest. Challenges include moderately steep hills, stream fords without footbridges, and sharp curves, and switch-backs. As you pass beneath mixed oak and pine forest, and wind along creeks, watch for a variety of birds, snakes, squirrels, and other wildlife.
