Not much crowd there as it's a bit secluded. It was worth every minute spent there. Trail changes gradually from thick woods (south loop) to open plains (north loop). I would be cautious of snakes in summer though. We saw plenty even in March, most were shy but one was too comfy to give way, would have stepped on it if I wasn't careful. The north-east part of trail shares territory with human establishment (can see some cows near the fence too). There is a small pond on the north loop but is inaccessible. Nearest we could come to it was maybe around 300 feet. The mid area was dry when we visited, so not many birds to view. There are no restrooms/water-taps anywhere.

Beautiful hike around a marsh, tons of wildlife! The northern half of the trail is completely unshaded, so if you go when the sun is out make sure to bring a hat (or in our case, it was bleak and cold and windy so make sure to bring a good warm windbreaker). You'll find a bench about every half mile or so, which is great for taking a snack break and enjoying the view. Due to the amount of wildlife (snakes and gators and such) there are no dogs allowed. When we went there seemed to be 5 or 6 trails that branch off of the main loop, but they were all chained off so I'm not sure if during the summer they'll be accessible. Overall it's a great 3 or 4 hour hike to get away from civilization for a while.
