Surprisingly challenging trail for this part of the country. Would have given it another star but the board walk that crosses a swampy area had sunk into the lake and I stepped in a nest of cottonmouths. Not very well maintained. Scenery varies from swamps to hilltops. Would like to do it again in cooler non-snake weather but have to avoid the hunters that are allowed in one corner of the park.
