“Take this trail to enjoy a great tour of Badin Lake.”— Russell Hobart
Eventually, the trail rounds the final peninsula and you begin to head south. Soon, the bay to your left slowly shrinks to the size of a small creek. From here, the trail rises and carves its way through the hills.
As you close in on the end of the trail you'll cross a few horse trails. Things get a bit complicated as you come toward Cove Road and the trail turns west. The Badin Lake Trail splits around the campground. Stay to the left for the most direct line, and soon you'll be back where you started.
