Cliffside Lake Loop Trail

Cliffside Lake Loop Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Within Cliffside Lake Recreation Area there are hiking trails, a fishing “pier,” a swimming beach, and of course the splendid lake itself. A trail connects the neighboring Van Hook Glade Campground to the recreation area, giving campers easy access and making this a great place to stay.

The flat, easy trail loops around the lake, following the shoreline most of the way. Although dogs aren’t allowed in the “people swimming area,” there are ample opportunities for them to take a dip in the lake."
