Part of the route can be completed using a motor vehicle on the gravel road. But motor vehicles are not allowed beyond a point so you will need a bike or walk. There are short birding trails off the connector all the way.
This is a nice walk in the woods and today was beautiful. I saw a lot of birds including large fishing birds. I would not know a turkey from a canary but it was fun seeing them dive for their diner. Like all of the trails on Hog Island )Really a peninsula) there are some nice water views. I think dogs are allowed on a leash for tracking wounded animals.
Trail was fairly easy, partially shaded with pleasant views of the plantation and river. Check out the park service area with the hogs you can pet. We came at cotton picking time and rangers gave a great demonstration. Also the corn kernel stripping machine was a big hit. Worth a visit.
