“Big hills and plenty of distance on paved, well-maintained trail.”— Clint Fowler
It goes over a paved, well-maintained trail through the countryside. You'll share it with light traffic - bikers, runners, and walkers.
Beginning at Panola Mtn State Park, and winding through Alexander Lake Loop, this section of the trail is connected to Arabia Mtn. Trail, and Rockdale River Trail, and can continue much farther north or south if a longer distance is desired.
The lake area also has restrooms available. If you are into it, there are SUPs and kayaks available to rent. More info here: gastateparks.org/PanolaMoun…
This segment winds around scenic Alexander Lake, rocky outcroppings, and beautiful pine forest.
As stated previously, wildlife is present. Prepare to see snakes, bugs galore, and all matter of small, furry critters. Deer often seem so used to people that they will linger in curiosity as you run past them.
