“This pleasant trail traverses diverse ecosystems on its way to Newnans Lake.”— Ann Russell-Vargas
Family Friendly Kids will appreciate this trail's smooth tread, gentle grades, and manageable length.
Along the way, the trail takes you through many ecosystems, ranging from cypress hammocks to upland pine. They are still working on clearing some of the land, so you might see adjacent trees that are down, but the trails are clear. For the most part, the trail is relatively flat and the highlight is the view of Newnans Lake near the far end of the loop.
