Need to Know

Summer can bring ticks, and two types of poisonous snakes that you should be aware of; the copperhead and rattlesnakes. There is also some poison ivy in spots.

Description

Starting from Overlook Park the trail winds around along the lake with many stopping points for water if needed. You'll skirt many of the park's campgrounds as well as the swimming beach, two boat ramps and the marina. There is also a small loop around Lake Henry, a popular trout fishing lake in the early Spring. There are many connector trails that you can use to loop back to the beginning or follow the trail all the way around to Cactus Ridge where it changes from white-blue and continue back to Overlook park on the opposite trail.

Flora & Fauna

There are many local and migratory birds as well as raccoons, possums, deer, rabbits, squirrels, and maybe even a snake or two.

History & Background

There is an old homestead with a stone foundation on Cactus Ridge.
