This trail is an extension of the B.W. Wells Short Loop Trail for those desiring a longer hike. Notice the foundations of old home sites that are still visible.
This loop trail connects group campsites from one end of the campground to the other. Enjoy lake views as this trail winds along parts of the shoreline – watch for osprey or bald eagles!
This trail runs between the Holly Point boat ramp and campground loop 2, but parking is only available at the boat ramp. This trail is for registered overnight campers and their guests only. This trail travels from the campsites in loop 2 through pine and upland hardwood forests; goes past loops 3, 4, and 5; and the amphitheater to the boat ramp parking lot.
Follow the gravel road through the hike-in campsites to the end of the Shinleaf peninsula. You will get great lake views on both sides of the trail as you near the narrow neck of the peninsula.
The Rolling View TRACK Trail is a 0.75-mile loop through a mixed pine forest along the edge of Falls Lake. Look for the effects of prescribed burning on the landscape.
This trail follows the shoreline of Falls Lake and connects all shelters in the access area to the swim beach. Enjoy lake views along the way to a viewing platform near Shelter 7.
This trail starts in an upland Piedmont forest and descends into a wetland area created by seasonal fluctuations of Falls Lake water levels. Look for "jail cell" trees as you hike – what could have caused the tree to grow this way?
Hike through pine and upland oak-hickory forests that have been periodically burned with prescribed fire. If you hike quietly, you may see a white-tailed deer or grey fox!
The Beaverdam TRACK Trail is a 0.6-mile hike one way (1.2 miles round trip). Enjoy a hike through through a mixed pine forest along the edge of Beaverdam Lake that leads to a wildlife observation platform overlooking Duck Cove.
This trail starts and ends where the Longleaf Pine Trail ends. From this point, it is 4 miles back to the parking lot if you follow the Longleaf Pine Trail. Another pond, larger than the pond at the Little Pond Spur, is accessible from this trail.
