We hiked several pieces of different trails, some of them could be done independently. The trails that receive the most use were well marked and mostly cleared of fallen trees. Some of those that did not appear to be well used were not marked well, or at all, and not cleared of fallen trees. Following is the route we took (minus those areas which we walked that ended up being very long wrong way's).
We parked at the Water Street parking area (if you only want to do trail loop 1 or 2, use the parking area on George Street across from Redman Dam). This is a large area with parking for vehicles with boat trailers attached and standard size vehicles. There are also restrooms and picnic tables. When you arrive, drive around the area for boat parking. When you get to the far end and turn back toward where you started your loop, if you look to the left, there is the trail head you are about to use marked with a 4. Return to where you started your loop, cross the road and park near the restrooms.
Walk back to the trail head and start up the hill. Before long, you come to an open area and have the option to go straight, turn right or turn left. Turn left here and follow the trail along Lake Williams. When you come to the fork, you will see a very confusing trail marker with a 3 and a 4 -and the both appear to go two directions. Stay left here, continuing around the lake. Trust me, if you go right, you climb a hill that you really don't want to climb.
As you make your way around the lake, you will begin to hear the traffic on George Street and start to climb a hill. When you get to the top, turn left and walk along George Street. About half way down the hill, you have a choice. You will see a yellow gate across the road from you that connects to a stone path leading up to the dam. You can cross the road here and do the balloon loop or continue down the road to the parking area. We chose to do the balloon loop, so we crossed the road and walked across Lake Redman Dam.
Walk back across the dam and return to your starting point. Hubby was goose hunting this day, so he was unable to join us. We took this picture so he knew we found what he was hunting for:
Sorry, back to hill 2, climb the hill to a T and turn left. Follow trail 2 until you see the yellow gate. Here, you can turn left and it will take you to water street OR you can go straight through the gate to water street. Either way, turn left onto water street. There is no sidewalk and people were not driving the posted speed limit, but it is not a horribly busy road and I did not feel uncomfortable, even walking a dog. Cross the dam at the bottom of Lake Williams (labeled 'One Lane Bridge') and continue walking on Water Street for about 3/4 mile until you see a picnic area on your left. Walk along the top of the picnic area, staying on the road past the guardrails at the end of the area. Shortly, you will see a break in the guardrail and a path through the trees to the left. Take this trail to the next road, turn left onto that road and follow it to the parking area.
I believe there is a path from the top of the picnic area to this same road, but I did not travel that way, so I cannot say for sure. If you have been there, or if you take this hike, let me know.
