Lake Shore Trail, Troutman

Directions: Follow signs from I-77 to Lake Norman State Park.  In the park follow signs to Group Camping area.  Trailhead is off of parking lot.

Trail Information: This is a 6.7 mile loop trail that follows the shoreline of Lake Norman.  The trail is reasonably well maintained and has some very nice views of the lake.  There is no water on the trail, other than the lake.  The trail is a woodland trail that goes up and many small gulleys.  It can be treacherous in the fall if the leaves are wet.
