The kids would call it a nature walk, but the rest of us call it a nice hike. Not a long walk but it is nice through the woods.

I'm not really going to call this a hike because it's only 1/3 of a mile, but it is impressive nonetheless. The well maintained gently sloping trail is 99% shaded by tall leafy trees. You can easily do this walk in 30 minutes in conjunction...More

Had a nice nature walk in this area, their are some off the trail paths along the water which are nice too, and if you're a little more adventurous worth the travel. They clearly are homemade paths, but definitely safe to use. would go back.

We hiked a couple of trails here while visiting Charlotte. The trails are not intense and are very family oriented. Nice, quaint, trails with some beautiful views.

I was in North Carolina last week visiting my son and his wife. She brought me here twice so their dog could have a swim. What a nice place. Lake Norman : unbelievable. People were picnicking, fishing walking or just enjoying the nature. Wonderful.
