A nationally recognized trails system invites visitors to take in a rich variety of flora and fauna. The Green Thumb Nature Trail at the Timber Road campground is a one-mile loop which rewards hikers with a panoramic vista of the lake. The nearby Table Mound Hiking Trail runs 2.75 miles north along the east side of the lake to the scenic overlook at the dam. At the overlook is the 2/3 mile Post Oak Nature Trail. There is also a paved and handicapped accessible 3.3 mile South Squaw Multipurpose trail. Running outside of the park is the Elk River Hiking Trail, a scenic route that begins at the west edge of the dam and ends near the U.S. Route 160 bridge on the Elk River.
