This trail is a great way to experience the swamp from the comfort of elevated wooden pathways. This section leads you to 2 of the 3 bird-blinds in the area, the third is pass the bridge and there is no wooden/paved path for wheelchairs but is easy to access nonetheless. When the feeders are full one can enjoy a nice variety of birds very close to the blinds. Aside from that, each pathway hides a treasure of wildlife, from mammals, reptiles to birds and Plants. Due to the fenced pathways and flat terrain, this is a great place to introduce kids to the swamp, just bring protection for the insects during the summer months.

The path overall was decent only one man wide with brush overhanging along with the occasional tree you need to walk around. Can get some nice views of swampy land.

WARNING
This path is not maintained often and at times it can become difficult to pick the right path due to sparse blazes.

Went in very early spring. Wear waterproof boots and tick repellant. Super cool vegetation and the frogs were so loud they were like a choir! A really nice but muddy walk.

Did the Orange Trail on 6/30/15. The trail was nothing but bugs so it is not just fall you have to worry about the bugs. The trail is more or less a one person width rarely wide enough for 2. It had not rained in a few days but was still nothing but mud the whole way from 3" - 6" at times.
