Piedmont National Wildlife Refuge Trails Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Piedmont National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1939 to manage the wildlife potential of the exhausted farmland. Walking these paths provides a window into the natural and human history of the region.

The area also features a visitor center, the Little Rock Wildlife Drive, and several ponds. An information kiosk provides basic details about the red-cockaded woodpecker and other wildlife on the refuge.

Another sign cautions about ticks, which can transmit Lyme disease and other ailments. Even in cooler weather it is wise to wear protective clothing, tuck pants into footwear, use a strong insect repellent, and check for ticks both during and after the hike."

This is a beautiful park with generally well-defined trails. The unmarked trail on the North side of the mountain returning to the parking lot is a bit hard to follow, but managable. it is easy to miss a turn for the lake trail, because you must step on rocks to cross the dam, and that path is otherwise unmarked.
