Charlton Recreation Area
Easy to Moderate
Winding trail from the Shangri La (Tompkins Bend campground) trailhead parking area to the Joplin trailhead parking area on Mountain Harbor Road.
The trail crosses many 400-hundred-year-old short leaf pines. There is a spur trail off this leg of the trail that is a 1.5-mile loop out to Eagle Vista that provides a view of the lake that, during the winter months, is home to several bald eagles. Named an Epic Ride by IMBA (International Mountain Bicycling Association) in 2014.
