Bob M. on Brooker Creek Preserve Loop Trail
I practice load adjusting my pack, and start training my legs and ankles for trailing here. Be forewarned the back part of the loop may have pockets of knee deep water during the rainy season, and soft mud in places. All said though this a great trail walking experience. Loved every minute of it and there are some of the best, most animal knowledgeable guides I have seen.
The area I was in was nice but I wish the trails for hikers was longer. The long trail is a horses trail and not for hikers. If you are doing anything besides horseback riding then you will get a ticket and from what I understand it's an $80 ticket for anything besides horseback riding on that trail
The Wilderness trail was closed. We tried it but it was impassible due to high water. The Black Water Cutoff trail was listed as open but it too was too muddy and wet to use. There were warning signs that said trails may have standing water in rainy season May to October. I guess we were still in the rainy season although the weather was fine. Maybe further in the winter eould work better
