This hike combines deep woods walking with added aquatic scenery. Vista Point Recreation Area, on the shores of Jordan Lake, provides a natural setting for this mostly level circuit. From the trailhead you work your way among hollies, pines, and oaks before striking out onto a peninsula surrounded by Jordan Lake. Cruise by a quiet cove before looping around to view the main body of the impoundment. The final part borders little coves before ending at a picnic shelter.
