Pleasant fairly easy trail through a wooded area to a scenic small lake.

Start the hike from the Reedy Creek parking lot. Hike down a section of the Loblolly Trail and then join the Reedy Creek Lake Trail. The trail is loose gravel and is fairly wide. The walk is not too difficult at all. In spring, you'll see many beautiful wildflowers along the way and at any point in the year, great views of the Reedy Creek Lake. If you have a little more energy, this trail connects to other good trails in the park.

Here is a park map.

Hike the Reedy Creek Lake Trail Reviews

This is a hidden gem. The reedy creek trail connects to the greenway system in Morrisville, NC. It is also part of Umstead State park which contains many miles of hiking. This serene trail takes hikers to a beautiful creek that is surrounded by trees bursting of autumn colors in the fall.
