NRT Ambassador Review
Long Creek Trail is a short (0.4-mile round trip), paved trail located near Woodlands Nature Station in the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area. The trail provides access to a wetland area along the creek side. To note, there are some bumps and potholes starting to form in the asphalt from natural weathering and plant growth. Also, the trail has numbered signs indicating there may have been a self-guided hiking brochure at one point but that information is no longer available at the visitor center. There is a decent sized parking lot at the trailhead. It is located across from the ruins of an iron furnace and local community that once operated in this area. There are multiple other short trails and picnic areas close by. The nature station has hands-on activities for kids and both plant and wildlife exhibits. This would make an ideal day trip for families visiting the area.
