Short flat interpretative loop trail that has 24 stations that coincide to a guide map that explains different features of the forest, the trail, the park and the area. Starts from a gravel parking lot along a white sand path and travels counter-clockwise over boardwalks and short bridges for 0.6 miles.

This is a short, easy and nice trail with a lot of tree cover. Access is from the first parking lot. I combine this with the Crabtree Lake trail for a good workout.

Short flat 0.6 mile interpretative trail, more of a walk than a hike. There are 24 stations that coincide to a guide that tells you about the trail, the forest and surrounding park. We used this as a warm-down after our trek around the lake.
