From the website:  From picnic shelter 1, begin this easy-walking, mostly-level, nature-trail loop along the shores of Lake Placid. At the far end of the lake, you will descend and ascend the steep slopes below the dam. You may see squirrels, birds, turtles, snakes and a variety of other wildlife as you walk amid tall trees in the natural habitat. You will circle the lake, cross a boardwalk foot bridge, and pass the swimming area, before you return to the picnic shelter where you began.

Trail highlights

Creek / River, Lake, Picnic Area, Playground, Shaded Hike, Shelter, Visitor Center, and Wildlife Viewing

The dam was built in 1890 and was the city of Greenville’s first public water source. The spillway was designed to look like a natural waterfall.

There are numbered stations around the lake that coincide with a trail guide available inside the park center.

Several bridges, rocks for scrambling, and lots of wildlife make this a great hike 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!
