“A pleasant section of the MST following the lake early on. The highlight is seeing Rolling View Marina coming into view.”— Maddy Hatter
The trail begins following the shore line and views of the lake are visible through the trees. The trail soon bends to start to go around a large inlet. The trail comes out of the beech forest to a power easement section and follows this uphill past the inlet end before bearing right back into the forest. The trail continues hugging the shoreline before moving inland and crossing over a stream. After heading uphill it continues along the shore line before bearing right towards the peninsula.
After cresting the incline, one is rewarded with views of Rolling View Marina on the other side of the lake. The trail then bears left to follow a large inlet. At the end of the inlet, the trail comes out of the forest to head further inland before crossing an easement and reentering the forest once more. The trail continues further inland crossing over another tiny stream and intersecting with an unmarked trail. It then bears right and then left again to pass a large cairn.
The trail can be continued another 2.2 miles or to reach the trailhead access point at Boyce Mill Road. However a convenient turnaround point can be reached at an intersection with another unmarked trail a little ways on. This involves continuing from the cairn, and following the trail through some pine trees before dropping down to the trail intersection. From here, retrace your steps back to the parking area from which you started.
