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 the Tindo Loops, follow the un-named Entrance Connector Trail out of the parking lot and take the first left on the Tindo Loops Connector. Proceed down the hill and across one gravel road to the figure eight-configured Tindo Loops.

These trails are rated beginner. The trail corridor does get narrow in places with sapling pines and other small trees tight to the trail, but overall there is little to no technical challenge.

Though there is signage at all of the intersections, navigation can be a bit confusing; just remember that to complete all of Tindo, continue straight across (both times) when you come to the four-way intersection.

FYI: "Tindo" is Catawba for Blue Jay.
