SoPac Trail Reviews

After running White Rock Lake Trail along the West Lawther side, one night, I reached the parking lot at Garland Rd near the spillover. The night was pitch dark and I could see this trail leading into a tree line. So being in an adventurous mood I decided to take it. Maybe because I had already ran about 6 miles and had never been down this trail, it seemed to go on forever. I had no idea where I was because on both sides are thick tree lines. At one point I crossed over a bridge. For some reason all I could keep thinking about was the ghost of White Rock, who is said to haunt this particular corner of the lake. I could see coyotes crossing the trail about 30 yards ahead of me and could hear them in the trees. Eventually I ended up connecting with the White Rock Lake Trail and was able to make it back to my car at West Lawther and Mockingbird.

-No views (just trees)
-Pretty flat
-Paved surface
-I never new this stretch of trail had a name until tonight.
