These trails are closed by the park staff when impacted by wet weather or freeze-thaw. If the weather in the area of the park is questionable (i.e. it has rained within 24 hours of your trip), be sure to check the trail status at the top of the Lake James State Park website before you go.

Description

To access East Wimba use the East Loop Connector off of the West Wimba Loop. Take a left on West Wimba, and follow the trail clockwise for approximately four miles until you reach this same location.

The East Loop has tighter turns and more twisty in general than the West. Elevation changes are frequent, but not long.

Note: "Wimba" is Catawba for Owl.
