Hidden Pond Songbird Tail is one of the short walks created by the Engineers Corps. It takes a little less than a mile to walk this short route. This site is located in the recreational dam recreation area just west of Lake Carters. Lake Carters is also a popular recreation area for people who want to take a break from some frequent hiking trails. Along the way, you will pass the remains of the Georgia Road, which was built in 1804 during the Treaty of Telico. After Andre Jackson and his battalion worked on the road in 1819, it was then called the Old Federal Highway.

Cherokees and farmers in the past also used some trees along the route as markers. On the way to tears, Cherokee left the area, building a dam until 1977, when it re-established a form near the Coosawattee River and Lake Carters. The path moves along the dam embrace in the reset dock.

From the speed of the south car park to the marked route at the entrance to the Carters Lake Dam. Just beyond this indicator, the path is divided into two paths. Take the right path along the bridge as you ascend from a hill to a steep hill. From here the path returns to the main path and then you will cross a longer bridge which will bring you a closer view of the lagoon. Along this route you will see several species of birds including seagulls, turkeys and hawks. Other wildlife such as raccoons, turtles, opossum and white-tailed deer can be found here. Cross this and then turn right at the end of the bridge to return to the main path.

The end of the saddle that forms Lake Carters can be seen on your left. Continue this route and reach the Beaver Pond, which was built by the Engineers Corps with several screens for bird watching. The lake is home to many species of birds that have lived in the area for centuries. In this park, the southern regulation dam has very good places that are best for fishing and picnicking. However, if you choose a longer hike, there are other trails nearby, such as the Great Oak Nature Trail and the Rock Nature Trail, both of which are accessible at the Carters Lake Visitor Center.
