A flat, paved 1/2 mile trail right near the sugarland entrance. Good for people with wheel chairs. Nice views of the river.

We hiked the OLD sugarland trail, that is NOT paved. We did about 4 miles of it, believe it is 10 if you do the whole thing. The first mile goes all along the water, beautiful views. Trail was rated as 'moderate'. Highly recommend.

This is a easy hike only a half mile away from Sugarlands Visitor Center down 441. This is I believe one of the only ADA approved and paved trails in the park. It is short and while it doesn't have any major views or sites,...More

It is always easy to park and walk a long of short way. The trails are lovely and well kept. There are many interesting spots along the walk. Even the grand children loved it.
