“A pleasant trail along the east side of the Duck River Reservoir.”— Zack Butler
Family Friendly The trail is relatively wide and not terribly steep.
The trail begins just up the entrance road from the parking area at a small grove trees. Almost immediately, it enters a clearing with excellent views of the reservoir before continuing to re-enter and exit cleared areas at random intervals. Although there is some climbing, it's neither long nor steep.
Approximately halfway to the end of the trail, there is a second trailhead at the dead end of CR-1651 on the east side of the reservoir. The second half is slightly more difficult than the first half, owing to the presence of some stream crossings and rocky sections.
Once you reach CR-1669 (there will be a bridge to the left), you can return the way you came or continue on the North Trail.
