A nice mix of water and woods. This trail was a joy although way too short.

A nice walk into the marshland. Starting from wildlife drive, the trail crosses a few hundred feet of boardwalk before hitting dry land. Then the trail splits into a loop, following waters edge first on the left trail and looping back through a more wooded trail.

Nice woodland and water views all the way out the peninsula. It sticks out into Shearness pool.

By the time we got to this pool they were all starting to look alike. The name, "Bear Swamp" is really cool.

A nice trail running out a peninsula. There is no tower on this one but a lot of nice views along the way.

All three of the 30 foot steel towers offer incredible views. This on is no exception. The little trail in is nice too.

Maybe this was the best pool because it was the beginning of a long day of looking at them.

This was a nice little side trail down to the water. There was an old wooden viewing ladder but I did not trust it. I already climbed the 30 foot steel tower on the tower trail.

This is a nice little side trail off the Raymond Tower Trail. About half way to the tower, look for a more primitive trail on your left. It will take you down to the water.

This is a great little walk. The climax is a thirty foot lookout tower looking out over the lake. It is a nice trail all the way.
