The Salem Lake Trail runs nearly 7 miles with a primarily dirt surface, circling Salem Lake at the park of the same name in the city of Winston-Salem. The park offers a 365-acre lake and the trail provides scenic lake views. Short paved sections near the marina on the west side of the lake are wheelchair accessible.
You can also connect to the Salem Lake Greenway at the fishing station on the lake's west end, and take the greenway all the way to the mall on Peters Creek Parkway.
Trail users note: The park closes in the evening, so don't get locked in. Also, when the water overflows the dam, the back gate will be closed. Also note that there is no bank fishing allowed at Salem Lake. Only fishing from boats is permitted.
The Salem Lake Trail is found at Salem Lake Park, 1001 Salem Lake Road.
