TRAILHEAD: 33.88034, -82.36470
0.7 mile loop
Studded with the brilliant white blossoms of dogwood each spring, the hillsides of Baker Creek State Park stand out in their new cloak of spring green as the leaves emerge on the forests blanketing the slopes. In its spring finery, the Wild Mint Trail at Baker Creek State Park is a delight to walk, a fine introduction to the oak-hickory forest topping these rugged hills. The views across the lake make this 0.7-mile hike worthwhile.
