Lake Channel Overlook Hike

Check out one of the best views on the lake with Park Ranger Jamie Cameron. The Lake Channel Overlook Trail is a moderate, 1.5-mile route through a section of the park that has been under prescription for fire. Come see for yourself the amazing habitat improvement that can be achieved through a thoughtful prescribed burning program and bring your camera to record the awesome overlook view of Lake James. Meet at the Catawba River Area parking lot at 1 p.m.
