If you’re not able to be here in person, rest assured that spring has come to Lake Martin and it is beautiful. It doesn’t feel quite as spring-y as I write this post today (April 15, 47 degrees) as it did last week when I took these pictures, but summer will be here soon, no matter. And it is still beautiful!
I took the pictures below near the Russell Forest Trails. Hiking is a great spring activity at Lake Martin, and there are really good trails all around the lake. The Russell Forest Trails allow horses and bikes, as do the trails at Wind Creek State Park. If you’re looking for more of an Appalachian Mountain hiking experience, try some the the Cherokee Ridge Alpine Trail Association’s trails on the eastern and southern sides of the lake. These include high, woodsy paths and waterfront trails. I’ve written about the Chimney Rock and Little Smith Mountain trails several times.
If spring has Lake Martin real estate on your mind, give me a call. I’d love to talk to you about the homes, lots, condos and town homes that are nestled over our 770 miles of shoreline. Call 334 221 5862 or click here to contact me.
