This park is located on one of the largest lakes in the southeast, the 71,100-acre Clarks Hill Lake. It is a great destination for camping as it provides numerous camp sites and picnic areas. Swimming, boating and fishing are also popular activities at this large park. The park is named for a Georgia Revolutionary War hero. Elijah Clark and his wife are buried on the property and a replica of his home and appliance of the era are also there for viewing. Enjoy hiking, mini golfing, archery and canoe rentals all at the Elijah Clark State Park. The nature trail on the property is a 3.75-mile trail with plenty of interesting sights and views.
Trail length: 4 miles

This is a super easy, well maintained, slightly wider than single track walk through the woods. There are a few points to picnic with scenic views of the lake. If you go, there is a single trail that meets the main loop. When you see the trail arrow pointing you left at the loop intersection, go right instead and up the hill to get the only uphill and section that parallels the road out of the way first. The rest of the way will be undisturbed and downhill. FYI, it took me right around an hour at a quick walking pace, not the four to six hours that the sign stated.
