SYTZ TRAIL SYSTEM
Walking/Running Trail Around Robinwood Lake

Catch some fresh air, sunshine and nature at it's best on the trail around Robinwood Lake. 

View a map of the Sytz Trail System

 

 

The trailhead for the system is located just off the northeast corner of the Y parking lot. You’ll spot a large kiosk there that will show you a map of the three connecting trail loops. The trails are well-signed along the way, well worn and traveled, and it would be just about impossible to get lost. The trail system is open from dawn to dusk each day and is for walkers and joggers only. No bikes. Furry friends are welcome!

The three loops include:

River Loop
River Loop is roughly a one-mile loop, marked in blue signage, and is considered the flattest, shortest, and easiest of the three loops. Highlights include Catawba Creek views and forest views.

Quarry Loop
This 1.66-mile circuit is the longest and steepest loop. Marked with green signs you’ll follow along the Catawba Creek which passes by a rock quarry and certainly some wildlife along the way.

Power Loop
This 1.39-mile circuit is marked with yellow signs. The power loop both begins and ends with the Power Line marker.
