Very nice views.

Lakeview Loop in the fall.
Oct 13, 2014 near Mignon, AL
View of Lake Howard from the Lakeview Loop in the fall.  Notice the leaf colors.
Oct 13, 2014 near Mignon, AL
Trailhead sign.  Keep right to take Bills Creek Loop and left to continue down the main trail.
Oct 13, 2014 near Mignon, AL
This is about the only creek crossing on the trail.  And no, it is not that technical.
Oct 13, 2014 near Mignon, AL
Sylaward Trail at Lake Howard is closed on Monday. The gate is locked.
Feb 27, 2018 near Mignon, AL
This spot can be confusing when returning to the trailhead.  The fire road is to the left (or straight) and the trail is to the right.
Oct 13, 2014 near Mignon, AL
One of the more technical spots on the trail.  It appears to have been made so by erosion exposing some tree roots.
Oct 13, 2014 near Mignon, AL
The doubletrack section begins here by crossing a large earthen dam.  The "trail" (actually a dirt road) is to the left of the picture.
