Falls Lake Trail (Mountains-to-Sea Trail) — Falls Lake State Recreation Area Professional Review and Guide

"The Falls Lake State Recreation Area encircles 12,000-acre Falls Lake, which lies about 10 miles north of Raleigh. Actually made up of seven individual parks, the Falls Lake area offers boating and fishing, beaches for swimming, campgrounds and picnic areas, and trails for mountain biking and hiking. One of the mini-parks, Sandling Beach State Recreation Area, contains a small hiking loop.

The Falls Lake Trail is divided into ten sections, numbered from east to west, starting at the dam and ending near the park office on NC 50. These sections can be hiked individually as out-and-back trails, using the road crossings as trailheads. The good news about the Falls Lake Trail is that it is only open to foot traffic, so you will encounter no mountain bikes or horses. However, the trail runs through North Carolina state game land, so hunting is allowed in season, September through May."

Went on a beautiful, clear day. Encountered only about 5 other parties (and it was a Sunday.) Offers pretty views of the lake, but is a very easy hike. Be careful there when it has been raining - lots of mud to go through and parking on the leaves/mud is hazardous (wench was called.)
