“A 26-mile trail leading around Lake Georgetown.”— Jeremy Ruckel
The trail passes through five Army Corps of Engineers operated parks. The trail passes by the Crockett Gardens Springs which flows in the lake. The area is covered with ferns and other greenery. There are also three primitive backcountry camping areas along the trail. The trail also passes over the dam.
The trail can be runed from any trailhead at any of the parks. While there are not very steep portions, the trail does roll up and down and is very rocky. In the summer it is very hot and dusty. There are many nice vistas overlooking the lake to stop and enjoy.
The lake is almost always in view and boaters are plentiful. Some areas of the trail get close to houses and neighborhoods, so at times it does not feel very remote, even though you may be a long way from the trailhead.
