This is a nice trail well maintained and pretty well marked. Although if you have the map downloaded it doesn't really matter. It is typical piney flatwoods, but has some really big trees. it also has SwampChestnut Oaks,or Basket oaks,that aren't always around, and it also has some very small American Beech trees. This is the southern most edge of their range. I saw two deer. The fawns are very small right now so they may have been hidden in the tall grass. Bring bug spray!

Hiked this trail for the first time a few days ago. it is well marked and maintained. Interesting to pass from one habitat to another. Yellow/orange trail loop has wildflowers, meandering creek, unique bridge, and shade. Trail was completely dry.

Great trail! Most of the yellow trail is shaded, while the blue trail is not. Various other roads that go off the main trail but it’s very clearly marked. Section of the trail cuts through the woods and has quite a few roots - the adults in our group had no problem, but the kiddos tripped and fell a few times. Info at the beginning of the trail warned of muddy/wet trail sections during certain months.
