Trail shared by Colton Lock

A great trail for a quick out-and-back.

Overview

This is the best trail in Wake Forest. It's close to the downtown area but it has a nice natural feel as it heads up and back the west shore of the reservoir.

Description

The best place to park is the dirt lot on the southwest side of the lake by the dam off of Traditions Grande BLVD. Take the trail north (an out-and-back, which you'll return on) until you dead end into the road (Oak Grove Church Rd).

Please be respectful of the homes near the trail. This property is owned by the City of Wake Forest and is a great resource for hikers and bikers.

Pretty fun little trail, with some somewhat difficult obstacles scattered throughout. I go here quite often since I’m right down the road. 6mi
