This hike takes place at one of the finer recreation areas of the Holly Springs National Forest, Puskus Lake. Leave the lake boat ramp and follow the interpretive trail as it wanders through the lakeside woodland and ends up making a double loop. During this hike you can enjoy views of the lake as well as learn a thing or two about the environment with the interpretive information scattered about the trail. The Puskus Lake Interpretive Trail is but one part of the Puskus Lake Recreation Area experience. The recreation area also offers water, restrooms, and nineteen lake-front campsites. To reach the alluring hardwood-shaded campsites, you can park your car and walk down beyond a split rail fence. Most have stellar lake views. Each site offers a picnic table, lantern post, fire ring, and tent pad. Some of them also have either a land peninsula extending into the water or a small dock to better fish and enjoy the water from your camp. You can vie for largemouth bass, catfish, bluegill, and crappie. Boatless anglers can use the fishing pier, conveniently located near the trailhead and boat ramp.
