Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Woodland Nature Trail is a little, wooded gem that is located near picnic area 1. It is a nice, shaded leg-stretcher hike that you can take after a swim or a picnic. The area is relatively quiet and peaceful, away from most of the motorboat noise from Falls Lake’s other recreation areas.

Another plus is the easy access to flush toilets and water fountains. The trail is not heavily traveled and is not open to mountain bikes. Abundant wildflowers in spring and colorful autumn leaves, as well as cooler temperatures and fewer insects, also make it a nice hike in those seasons. However, the Sandling Beach section is closed from November 1 through March 15."

"This fabulous forest stroll leads you on a self-guided hike around the loop. Brochures near the trailhead are filled with educational information that coincides with the numbered posts along the path. You’ll learn about a variety of species within the woods, while this diverse forest keeps you shaded the entire way. Most people leave the hustle and bustle of the city and visit the recreation area for the sprawling 12,000-acre Falls Lake, but you’ll be surprised to see how enjoyable it is to stay on dry land as well. The Woodland Nature Trail leads you through a wonderful wooded forest that’s surprisingly diverse. Maple, oak, beech, hickory, poplar, and pine trees keep the trail shaded, and you can learn about them as you take the self-guided tour along this interpretive trail."
