With the boats gone and only the occasional biker on the trails, Smithville Lake provides a quiet place for a winter hike.
 

If the weather outside is frightful or unseasonably warm, the lake boasts a number of trails where you can explore nature and enjoy a bit of solitude. Snow covered trails can provide a little winter adventure or you may spot a bald eagle along the shoreline. 

Whether you're up for a leisurely walk or an afternoon hike, there's a trail for you:

  • Lake Remote Park & Nature Area provides 3.95 miles of improved trails in a 40-acre setting surrounding a secluded lake. The park is part of Smith`s Fork Park and is located under the dam on the north side of the spillway.

  • The Smoke & Davey Trail System is composed of three trails and is 4.8 miles in length accessible from Highway W to the north and from Sailboat Cove to the south. The trail head near the Highway W boat launch provides easy access to the 11 miles of unpaved single-track biking/hiking trails as well as the paved trails.

  • The Bonebender Trail System is composed of two trails and is 8.9 miles in length accessible from Sailboat Cove to the north and from the Main Park's Office to the south.

  • The Crows Creek Trail System is composed of two trails 8.9 miles in length accessible from Collins Road to the north, the Crows Creek Boat Ramp and Access 25 off 160th Street to the south.
Trail maps can be found at each trail head or downloaded from the Clay County website.
