“This is a 4-mile multi-use loop along Jordan Lake between the Visitor Assistance Center and Poe's Ridge boat ramp.”— US Army Corps of Engineers
Family Friendly There are shortcuts available along the loop to make it more appropriate for children.
Additionally, this is a multi-use trail, and there may be hunters in the area during hunting season. Be sure to wear bright colors to be seen. There is a limited amount of bright orange vests available for you to borrow at the Visitor Assistance Center Trailhead.
The trail is in close proximity to the B. Everett Jordan Dam.
