Owl’s Roost Trail (4.34 miles)
The Owl’s Roost Trail has been designated as part of the North Carolina Mountains-to-Sea Trail. Designed for mountain bikers and hikers, the trail is accessible east of the fishing pier at Lake Brandt and from the Atlantic-Yadkin Greenway just north of the Weaver Bridge. The trail follows the shore along the peninsula. Mountain bikers can enjoy riding on more than 1.3 miles of fire lanes. Parking is available by the Lake Brandt fishing pier and along Strawberry Road. Cyclists are requested to use caution, watch for pedestrians, and avoid riding after rainfall when the trails are muddy to help reduce trail erosion.
Big Loop Trail (2.06 miles)
Big Loop Trail is accessible next to shelter #4, by the driving range parking lot, next to the large playground in the first parking lot, and from the Atlantic-Yadkin Greenway .
Little Loop Trail (0.8 mile)
The Little Loop Trail is accessed from Atlantic-Yadkin Greenway just past the pond near shelter #8. The trail starts up a wooded hill and loops around to end on the Greenway.
Wood Duck Way (0.1 mile)
Wood Duck Way connects the lower tennis courts to pond #1. This trail incorporates scenic terrain with a natural outdoor classroom for learning and exploring.
Pedestrians can access the Atlantic-Yadkin Greenway next to the Wildlife Education Center. The Greenway is a paved trail that leads to the Guilford Courthouse National Military Park. There is a great view of Lake Brandt from the H. Michael Weaver Bridge. Many different native plants, wild flowers, pines, and mixed hardwoods make this trail quite scenic. If you wish to take a detour off of the paved Greenway, you can venture onto one of the unpaved Watershed Trails. Both the Nathanael Greene Trail and the Owl’s Roost Trail intersect the Greenway.
