“Good singletrack giving hikers access to many unmapped trails in a lesser used area of the park.”— Kevin Ketchman
The trail then heads downhill, crosses a road, and brings hikers to a "Y" in the trail. Take the Lake Loop to the right. The Lake Loop is identified by a simple wooden sign on a tree. Staying right will take you to Greer Road. In half a mile, you'll come out to the small lake/pond. At the other end of the lake, you'll make a sharp left up the hill climbing 100 feet or so before leveling out and making your descent to Greer Road.
The trail is smooth with a few sections with mud or roots. The climbs and descents are steep and one section has loose rock, but in general it is a good trail for a hike.
You'll have access to plenty of other unknown trails, but they don't all loop back, so you may want to study up at the park website or use the Hiking Project mobile app.
