As you walk, you'll enjoy a nice breeze, or sometimes, a strong wind, while looking out over Lake Murray. Either way, the walk is lovely. At the dam, the lake is over a mile wide so it's easy to get in over 2 miles if...More

Walking from Lexington side to Irmo side (all the way to the restrooms) and back is 4 miles! It is a safe walk with a great view. Walk early in the morning! It is hot! It is an even surface. You really can move at...More
