Just got back from there, I was a bit disappointed to see that they are clearing out trees (seemingly) in a few areas to make the trail wider, the elevation changes are nill.
The weather here has been bad so there were some debris on the trails and a fair amount of mud and water. It took us 70 minutes to hike about 2 miles mostly because we ventured around the area.
Still a nice place to just get out.

entrance is flooded. did not attempt to go forward

This trail is very easy with a few scenic areas. This place is great for taking younger children out for a walk in the woods. It's a nice spot to take a stroll if you do any sort of hiking and it's a nice place to introduce children to the hiking lifestyle. There is a beach area on the east side of the trail next to the train tracks with a rope swing.

Walked most of the trail the other day and was fun and had alot of good scenery. Seen a couple cotton mouths and seen a gator from a distance. But over all a good walking trail
