Oconee State Park has all the perks of a relaxing mountain getaway. This trail loops around the lake in the center of the park.
Begin this easy walking, dirt and grass, loop at the lake swimming area. From the parking area you will descend on a stone walk, pass in front of the swimming pavilion, cross the spillway, and pass the waterwheel on your left. You will wind around a dirt path that offers fishing access between the lake and rental cabins. A bench in a quiet natural area on the far end of the lake marks the halfway point of the trail. You may see fox, raccoon, snakes, Canada geese, woodpeckers, and a variety of other birds and wildlife. The Wormy Chestnut Trail adjoins the Lake Trail, if you would like to extend your hike. Remember to wear insect repellent in warm weather. Pets are permitted on leashes. Restrooms and water are available at the Park Office and pavilion area.
