Soak in some varied water features on this triple-loop hike at conveniently located Umstead State Park. First, the Sals Branch Trail leads across its namesake creek then through big woods to emerge astride Big Lake. Next, cruise along the rocky shoals of Sycamore Creek and Potts Branch on the Potts Branch Trail. Visit odd Oak Rock on the Oak Rock Trail then return to Sals Branch Trail before finishing this triple play.
