About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

Farmdale Reservoir is a lightly trafficked trail area in Tazewell Co.  Trails are easy, but often muddy or wet. They are also not clearly marked, so completing the full loop trail takes a bit of concentration.

Hikers will often find themselves sharing the trails with mountain bikers, horses, and dogs (off-leash is permitted). In addition to hiking trails, there is a rustic mountain biking obstacle course.

About The Guide

Hike it Baby Family Trail Guide is an online resource to help families with children source trails that little legs can hike and parents can feel comfortable with. Hike details are sourced and have been hiked by families who participate in our community. Our contributors do their best to give you all the details they can, but if something is missed, you can reach out to the contributor and offer suggestions for them to add to make it a better trail description for all. This guide was built with a generous 3-year partnership with L.L Bean. Like Hike it Baby, L.L Bean believes that helping get families into nature from birth on is key to healthier, happier communities.
