The park's Longleaf Trail was created in 2013 as a way to connect hikers and joggers from the Visitor Center to the park's Sand Path and then onto the Spanish Moss Trail. Following the trails in that order permits for a two-mile loop back to the Visitor Center. The Longleaf Trail is so named for the fact that it passes through the park's longleaf pine restoration area, a 75-acre section of mixed pine and hardwood that is being burned with prescribed fire on regular intervals to foster the dominance of the longleafs that originally were featured on the property.
The Lower CCC Trail was named for the Camp Dyer Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). The trail follows a ridgeline that separates the Henry Fork Watershed and the Jacob Fork Watershed. Murray Branch Backcountry Campsite can be reached from this trail. Horses, hikers and bicycle riders share the Lower CCC Trail.
The trail provides access to Shinny Creek Trail, the Shinny Creek Backcountry Campsite and the Upper Falls Trail.
The trail serves as a boundary between North Carolina gamelands and the park. Benn Knob Peak is a restricted area.
The trail runs north to connect Kim Saunders to Corapeake Road, further west than S Martha Washington and Laurel. It's a six-mile hike to reach Western Boundary Trail from the visitor center.
Beginning just a few hundred feet beyond the end of Canal Road, this is the fastest way to reach the water control structures, located near the junction of Corapeake and S Martha Washington. This trail is the park's newest, and connects Kim Saunders and Corapeake.
