People here are snotty and BEWARE where you get out of the car (with your dog) and start looking for the trailhead. You may be sacrificed by the locals who live in the campers. Lol. We almost got jumped by some old lady here because our GPS lead us to the wrong spot to start. Lol. Decent trail though.

Unbelievable how rude the attendants are... We were stopped and Confronted by the older lady that runs the day area by the trail. WHATEVER you do, don't take the wrong road- they all work together in making sure the experience is ruined. It reminded me of the movie "anger management".. We were calm and looking for directions and they kept telling us to "calm down" while they freaked out! Unreal!

This trail is very easy. The first part is primarily uphill and provides a nice calf workout. The top is flat with two scenic overlooks of Center Hill Lake. The last part is downhill. You have a choice to go back the way you came or circle around to an amphitheater. It's not a very technical trail at all and it has limited parking at the trail head. There are other activities (boating, fishing, swimming, camping, etc.) to do around the area besides hiking alone.

Great running trail that you can go as little or as far as you want. Some steady inclines, but nothing too taxing.
