This 1300-acre, lake-oriented park features the mostly hard-surface 4.3 mile Black Hill Trail, over 10 miles of natural surface trails, and a water front trail along Little Seneca Lake.
Trails offer spectacular views of the lake, and meander through oak and hickory forests through some of our Best Natural Areas. Historical markers identify former mill sites, and interpret past gold mining history.
Unless noted otherwise on the map, trails marked “Natural Surface” and “Hard Surface” are “Shared by All” trails which includes hikers, bikers and equestrians.
