Runner Notes

This is a long and difficult trail. There are no restrooms or water fountains along the trail so come prepared.

Description

This 9-mile segment begins where Lakeside Trail concludes, at the west end of Lake Lurleen Dam, next to the dam spillway. Use caution. Some sections are steeply graded, sandy, or covered with loose gravel. In addition, the 9 miles contain no shortcuts to either trailhead. Plan accordingly, as you'll be in a wilderness environment. In addition to the well maintained trails in the area, camping, swimming areas, and restrooms are located near the park entrance.
