Wintergreen Trail #480/480A

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

The Wintergreen Trail is a loop trail that begins and ends at the Holly Bay Campground amphitheater. The trail provides access to Laurel River Lake. The first 200 yards of the trail are paved.

The trail loops around the west side of the amphitheater and follows a small drainage area rich with ferns. The trail then joins the Sheltowee Trace National Recreation Trail #100 (Section 26) and skirts the edge of the lake below H-loop of the campground. Wintergreen Trail leaves the Sheltowee Trace and returns uphill. A short spur trail #480A returns to the amphitheater parking area.
