There are two small lakes that comprise Greenwater Lakes. Both offer a relaxing place for a picnic and are a good place to do some fishing! The path takes you past a small but intriguing waterfall and the Greenwater River stays along your side for much of the hike. The trail begins wide and open but quickly enters the dense forest. At about 1.5 miles from the trailhead the river speeds up and flows through a narrow gorge, making quite a scene of beauty. A couple bridges here help you cross the river and you will find Lower Greenwater Lake after the second. The trail climbs from here and crosses the river again before taking you to Upper Greenwater Lake.
