Getting there
From the MacDonald's/ Huddle House traffic light in downtown Hiawasse (US 64 west), head out of town towards Hayesville. Turn left when you see the sign for Jack Rabbit Campground( US Forest Service), over the border into NC. As you come to a bend and can see the lake, the trailhead is on the left BEFORE THE CURVE with a sign" Jack Rabbit Mountain Bike and Hiking trails". It's in a grassy field. I drove past, but saw the sign as I passed it the first time.

    Flat and fast, but with lots of fun rollers! Views of the lake are great!

    One of the flattest loops in the Jack Rabbit system; and that is saying a LOT. Fast but flat trail runs you around the edge of the lake much like the earlier Central loop trail that it stems from. Find a big gear and get a fast cadence going because you can fly around this short loop. As on all trails in the Jack Rabbit system, keep an eye out for trail runners.
