Kinda disappointing. Was expecting it to be more woodsy.

This is a very flat and easy trail. we saw a white-tailed buck, lots of baby frogs, and plenty of birds. We didn't even have to use any deet; neither of us were bitten by ticks or mosquitoes.

A nice little one mile nature trail. Reminds me of Waterfowl Way near Ashdown. Nice!

Easy walk. Saw lots of butterflies. The walk along the dam is still overgrown.

Nice and easy trail in DeGray Lake state park. Mostly flat and offers plenty of opportunities to see birds. At the bird observation shelter, we saw lots of birds in the lake. Great trail for kids.

First to Review

Well kept easy short trail with a nice little bird-viewing station about half-way through. Runs along the lake for plenty of nice landscape views. I have a son in a walking boot when we did this trail and he did it with no problem.
