Great trail but watch for Pygmy rattlesnakes! I see them every time I go.

Well marked (apparently thanks to an Eagle Scout). Did the yellow, orange, purple segments and was around four miles. Fairly flat. Marshes were the best part.

Went down to the south end of the island and back, which was a nice hike to do early in the morning and the walking out onto the shore was a great view. There's also a picnic table down there right where you can see the water, so that was nice too. We saw a bunch of tiny crabs on the beach and lots of animal tracks in the sand, it was pretty neat :D

They do warn you about ticks and other biting insects before you go into the park, so definitely make sure to bring bug spray. Parts of the yellow trail heading back to the parking lot don't have a lot of shade either, so sunscreen is also a good idea.

Also when you first pull in, there's a $3 per vehicle entrance fee which you'll need to put in an envelope and stick in the box if nobody is sitting at the gate taking money.

Easy trail that is very clean with nice scenery. We did 5.2 miles using the yellow and purple trails. Didn't see much wildlife except for one armadillo and some awesome hawks hovering above. Well worth spending a few hours walking.

pretty easy trails with gorgeous scenery!

I like to trail run this place. Watch for pigmy rattlers when warm out.
