US National Whitewater Center: Lake Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Lake Trail travels south from the US National Whitewater Center headquarters and weaves through a shaded pine forest to reach the banks of several lakes in the southeast corner of the property. Though the first and last part of this hike travel through exposed terrain, most of the route falls under the shade of the forest. The water found on this trek is still and peaceful, unlike the fast-moving Catawba River to the east of the Whitewater Center.

The route also provides terrific opportunities to look for nesting waterfowl as well as frogs, water snakes, beavers, and muskrats. The trees along the second half of the hike are heavily covered in vines, which add intrigue and dimension to the towering tree trunks. And at 3.5 miles this hike can easily accent or highlight a full day of activities at the Whitewater Center."
