Watson Mill Bridge State Park: Walking Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The hike begins with a good view of the shoals beneath the bridge, which serves as a natural water park for visitors. You can then descend to the bottomland forest along the river, or walk along the 300-yard stone canal to reach the powerhouse ruins. From the ruins, walk southeast on the upper slope where a wood platform provides a good view of the river. You then reach an intersection with the Holly Tree Loop Trail.

From here you can continue to explore the river and a nearby tributary, but only a very brief stretch of this is worth checking out. I recommend you take the Holly Tree Loop Trail, which rolls through beeches, oaks, and sweet gum trees and provides another good view of the hydroelectric powerhouse."
