Hematite Trail

  The Hematite lake ''loop'' trail offers a nice and easy 2.2 mile day hike. Most of the trail is lakeside and offers many areas to watch water foul, in fact there is a blinded dock that is connected to shore by a 100' wooden foot bridge. The careful eye may also pick up on the attractive blue slag stones, remnants of the iron industry that thrived in LBL until the late 1800's. Part of the trail even takes you on a tour of the swampish inlet of the lake, via
    a foot bridge that is nearly water level. Finally wear sturdy footware, there be snakes in them woods.
Says John Austin

Gotta get out of the city man, and Hematite Trail in Trigg County, Kentucky is a good choice. Hematite
Trail is a long drive away from Murray but hiking along this trail is very enjoyable. Barnes Hollow is a good place to have a look at close to Hematite Trail. Why not camp at Hurricane Creek - Barkley Lock And Dam Lake Bar while you're here at Hematite Trail; don't forget to take a good little spree to Negrorow Branch. When you're here at Hematite Trail it's always fun to explore Kenlake State Park, and Fulton Creek is close at hand and always perfect to  
go to. If you came for an overnight stay Goose Hollow Camp Ground & Recreational Vehicle is a magnificent place to camp. Long Creek is a wonderful stream that is worth taking a look at, and there are plenty of folks from Eddyville here. Any time is a good time at Hematite Trail if you go for the outdoors.
