Lake Norman State Park: Lake Shore Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Attention pedestrians: Lake Norman State Park reserved the most scenic route on the property just for hikers! Unlike the other multiuse trails at the park, this path is reserved for those traveling on two feet. The gorgeous loop contours the quiet undeveloped shoreline of northern Lake Norman. The path weaves in and out of protected coves, where nesting waterfowl can often be found. And because this route travels a peninsula with a small neck, almost the entire hike offers stunning views of the lake. Although the hike stays near the flat and tranquil water, the short but constant ups and downs on the trail make this hike feel more strenuous than you might expect. But if you take your time, a good attitude, a picnic, and perhaps your camera, this will soon become one of your favorite hikes near Charlotte."
