Trail shared by Kristen Arendt

A more challenging, twisting and undulating trail through the forest that surrounds the park.

Kristen Arendt

Features Lake · River/Creek

Description

This trail is the most difficult trail in the park. It is also the longest. The terrain quickly undulates and winds around many sharp twists and turns. It roams through a mixed hardwood forest and borders another one of the park's lakes. There are many short but tough uphill sections and many quick downhill sections.

To access the northwest entrance of this trail, use the Lake Trail to Oconee Trail Connector. When the connector trail terminates, the entrance to the Oconee Trail is directly across the paved road into the small area for primitive camping. A second entrance to the trail is found at the south terminus of the Old Waterwheel Trail where these two trails overlap. The blaze color for this trail is green.
