Guilford Mackintosh Lakeside Double Loop Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This double loop hike takes place at Guilford Mackintosh Park, located on Lake Mackintosh, developed as a water source for Burlington. The elevation changes are sure to give exercise value to your shoreline trek. The main loop is nearly 3 miles in length, but you can cut it short to 1 mile, giving yourself ample time to enjoy other park facilities.
Burlington, one of the Triad communities, is growing fast. More water sources were obviously needed to sate the increasing population, so the authorities decided to create Lake Mackintosh. Later, Guilford Mackintosh Park was added along the shoreline. The new preserve is in great shape and offers a first-rate park experience. The trails are a lure for hikers and mountain bikers, but the park offers more than that."
