If you like walking through the woods, this is a great place to check out. You could walk forever it seems!

You can do everything... hike, kayak, fish, mountain bike, picnic, or just walk and admire. All trails are marked and signaled and most of them go near the lake which makes them more beautiful. Best way to relax and exercise at the same time.

The Lake Brandt watershed trails are a true gem of Greensboro. There are miles and miles of trails for hiking or strolling or mountain biking. Many of the trails are along the shore of the lake and offer amazing views of waterfowl and other wildlife....More

Variety, views, difficulty, fun. You can walk them, you can ride them, and they have it all. There are hills, sidewalks, roots and steps -- both very tough and very easy. Check out this excellent park and walk/run the trails. You won't be disappointed.

I use this trails at least 3 time per week. Well maintained and most vistiors are respectful, i.e. no bikes on hiking only trails. Many trails to choose from.

We enjoyed our afternoon here. It is very beautiful. Rentals are expensive compared to other lake parks. The workers are very friendly and helpful.

All of the trails around Lake Brandt are well groomed and worth hiking. Parking so far is ample at each trail head although watch carefully when crossing the street. If you walk quietly you may see wildlife. Lots of waterfowl and flowers in the spring.

Well defined and marked paths. Parking area to trail head. Peaceful stroll through the woods. I didn't care for the trail stopping and having to cross N. Church St. in a 45 mph zone, even with it marked for a crosswalk.

Beautiful Lake! Thought the trails were maintained and marked well. Sat on the lake for about an hour! It was awesome!

The trails at Lake Brandt actually parallel Lake Higgins and Lake Townsend as well. If you know what you are doing (talk to a fellow walker, or spend a little time looking at the Greensboro trails maps, which are online), there are at least 50-60...More

Good question. I'm going to ride it today and I'll let you know. As far as I have seen, the trails are all fairly flat and well-established. Therefore, I would say the degree of difficulty is low; the kind of trails you can... More
