A short and easy loop, with wonderful views as it follows along the edge of the lake for much of the distance. It is very family and dog-friendly, and is easy to combine with many other trails at the Latta Plantation Nature Preserve.
I suggest to park at the canoe launch, take the Audubon and the Cattail loops. Bathrooms are in the middle. about an hour. east hike, watch for roots.
Easy trail next to the water...short loop with pretty scenery. We did the Audubon loop which was a little more challenging but still easy with better views of the water.
