Falls Lake State Recreation Area: B. W. Wells Recreation Area Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Th is route explores the B. W. Wells Recreation Area, combining the Long Loop Trail and the Short Loop Trail. Th e path begins from the trailhead in the fi rst parking lot on the west side of Benthill Court. Th e trail ventures along the shore of Falls Lake, briefl y off ering incredible views of the lake as you walk. After leaving the lakeshore, the trail loops through the forest before returning to the trailhead. Along the route you pass several group campsites. Th is is a sparsely used portion of the Falls Lake Recreation Area. If you’re searching for some solitude, then you’ve come to the right place. For this reason, the hike is one of my favorites."
