At the post and rail fence, begin this gently-rolling, hiking/biking, out-and-back trail that winds along the scenic lake shore. You will zig-zag and switch-back on a single-track dirt path that traverses ditches and streams. Biking challenges include roots, rocks, close trees, occasional sinkholes and other minor trail hazards. As you pass beneath the shade of pine and oak woods, watch of a variety of birds, snakes and other wildlife. The trail ends near the skeet shooting area where you can return the way you came. If you wish to extend your hike/ride, other Hickory Knob trail options include the Turkey Ridge and Lakeview Trails.
