The Willis River Trail is a 16 mile moderate loop trail that exits the park and passes through the Cumberland State Forest where it intersects the Cumberland Multi-use Trail. An excellent loop hike of about 3 miles length is possible by taking the Lakeside Trail to the Willis River Trail then the Willis River Trail to the Cumberland Multi-use Trail, and upon returning to the park, using the Channel Cat Interp. Trail to return to the parking area. While traveling through the forest, you will observe several different and unique environments. Oak-hickory forests, stands of Loblolly Pine, and harvested areas attract many different forms of wildlife. White-tailed deer, wild turkey and bobcats are common residents of this productive and well managed natural resource.
