Since I have a waterfront lot listed for sale in Lake Martin’s The Ridge, I get a lot of questions about the various amenities of the Ridge. One of the huge benefits to owning a waterfront home or town home in the Ridge is access to all of the “stuff.”
If you would like to see waterfront homes and lots for sale right now in The Ridge area, CLICK HERE to go to my Ridge Neighborhood page. I have a report that shows every waterfront home and lot for sale – by all agents, all brokerages, on Lake Martin. It pulls from the Lake Martin MLS so it will be current no matter when you visit the page.
Though I have been in the neighborhood countless times, I had never been by road to The Ridge’s Beach Park before yesterday. It was really nice, it has a big covered pavilion, changing / rest rooms, and, of course, a big beach. The water view is of Lake Martin icons Chimney and Acapulco Rock Islands.
While I was there, I also hiked a bit on some Ridge Trails (download a map). The developer, Russell Lands, has done a really nice job about incorporating off the water features here. There are tons of mulch lined trails through the woods, that explore common areas and various other parks in the Ridge.
One example is Red Oak Trail and Hickory Hill Trail, I took these down to Hidden Park. Hidden Park has its own gazebo, boardwalk, and fishing pier. It was really nice and peaceful. Now that the leaves are down, you can sit up on the gazebo and get a nice view of woods and water of Lake Martin.
If trail hiking is not your thing, you can stick to the sidewalks. There are many of those around The Ridge, too. Check out my video of the morning:
