Pretty good trail for starters. Decent scenery early in the morning. Ups and downs make it a decent workout at full speed. Overall, a pretty good trail. Easy+ i would say.

This trail is average as far as scenery and challenge are concerned. A very quick 5.7 miles. It's rather hilly so there is a bit of a workout to it, but the decline makes it easy to catch your breath and keep on going. There's not a lot that's terribly special about this trail, but I enjoyed it all the same. Not a whole lot to see aside from other people and trees.

We went to the Iron Cove Hill trail that wraps around the lake. It's a 3.5 mile trail, very well maintained and flat the entire route. There are several picnic benches along the trail, and plenty of spots for swimming. The trail runs next to the lake the entire way. This lake was truly gorgeous for a Georgia lake! The water was crystal clear and turqouise. There were several boats, jetskis, and paddle boarders on the water. Great trail for families or a casual stroll if you're looking to take it easy. We did see some tents across the lake but no camping sites along this specific trail. We definitely plan to go back for a relaxing weekend of camping.

Awesome for ultra runners! Not for poser trail runners. Great hiking with good cardio for most.

This trail was well maintained and the people at the ranger station were helpful and friendly. But the trail was a little monotonous. I will probably not return for this one.
