Though primarily known for its 365-acre lake and attendant activities—fishing and boating— Salem Lake Park is also the center for hiking in Winston-Salem. There are some good stretches along this side of the lake for fall color. In particular, a deep cove at the 4-mile mark includes some dazzling redbuds, red maples, and dogwoods, whose various shades of red pop against the otherwise yellow foliage.

My wife and I thouroughly enjoy this trail about 3-4 times a month. It's beautiful and everyone we cross on the trail is friendly. We usually bike around the lake for good exercise together. It's always clean of trash and debris, just a good trial altogether.
