Oak Mountain State Park: Lake Tranquility Loop Professional Review and Guide
"This hike, which starts on the Yellow Trail and returns on the White, covers rolling, wooded terrain for the first mile and a half until it reaches Maggie’s Glen. A mile later, you reach the shores of Lake Tranquility. Circle it and make a connection across the rental-cabin access road to the White Trail, which returns to the North Trailhead.In this early stretch of trail, the forest is recovering from a pine beetle infestation. Thick patches of juvenile pine trees compete for sunlight; there are also a decent number of longleaf pines and saplings. In late September, the hike offered a wide variety of wildflowers."
