Description

The Peninsula Trail leads visitors along the lake shore through a variety of forest habitats, including a longleaf pine stand and mixed oak/hickory hardwoods. If you're quiet, you may catch a glimpse of a deer, turkey or a variety of waterfowl along the way. This rarely crowded trail system offers great views of Harris Lake. Visitors will enjoy the flat pathway leading around the lake, and the bustle of the Raleigh area will fade away.
