Sal's Branch Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Sal’s Branch Trail is a great introduction to the 22 miles of hiking trails at William B. Umstead State Park. This loop trail runs downhill through pine forest and mixed hardwood forest.

The far end of the loop passes Big Lake, where you can stop to rent a canoe, or just explore the banks before heading back uphill through beech forest. Take note of the quartz deposits common in the park."
