About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

North Lake is one of the more remote areas of Paris Mountain, with several different trail routes to get there.  The shortest one begins at the top of the park road and follows the Brissy Ridge and Pipsissewa Trails to North Lake Trail.  From there, you can loop all the way around the lake for an additional 1.2 miles, or fork right and just go as far as the lake shore before returning the same way.

The trail itself is easy-moderate in difficulty, but the length makes it tough for little walkers.

I joined Hike it Baby in 2014 when my son was just 2 months old.  A year later, I became an Ambassador for the Greenville, SC branch.  I love raising my kids on the trail and meeting so many like-minded families!
