This trail at Weldon Springs State Park circles a scenic spring-fed lake. Along the way you will enjoy good views of the 29-acre impoundment, as well as stopping by fishing platforms, crossing the lake dam, and visiting sobering Veter- ans Point. The trail visits the park marina and campground. Numerous ups and downs make for a fun hike and watery views are almost constant. While hiking the trail, note that this recreation area has been in operation for almost 150 years.
