A trail at Laurel River Lake

Laurel Loop Trail

This trail is a 1 1/4 mile strenuous hiking trail located before the uncontrolled spillway and Laurel tail waters.  This trail loops from a heavily forested natural area which include many prime examples of local floral and fauna.  The trail includes several natural and developed overlooks for excellent views of the spillway inflow and tail waters area.  The steep natural terrain limits the accessibility.

Sheltowee Trace National Recreation Trail 

94 miles of this trail are located within the Daniel Boone National Forest.  Portions of the trail skirt the western edge of the shoreline.
