Did this one last year. Waited a few days after it rained but much of it was still wet with large pools of water. Some parts of the trail can get confusing because some of the trail markers are covered in brush making it difficult especially when there are two paths to take. Because of the humidity and bugs I'd suggest waiting until winter for this one.

Beautiful, easy trail. Enjoyed the solitude of a scenic lunch at the point watching osprey dive for fish.

The portion of the trail I went to was labeled "Tarkin Bayou Preserve. It was $3 just to park there. The longer portion of the trail wasn't maintained well (flooded in several areas, ruts). Pretty but not worth $3 in my humble opinion.

great day hike, takes you out to a point that is beach and ocean. it does loop as long on you ver to the right going back toward the parking area. some tall grass, nothing crazy but it is a nice option versus the out & back on same trail.

Did some geocaching and biking. A portion of the 5.9 trail is clearly defined. The second part of the loop has not been cut in a while. Used Garmin along the trail. Some very sandy areas. Over all beautiful area with water views.

The trail that takes you to the lake is okay but we tried to do one of the long hikes but ran into knee high grass for about half a mile before we turned around. They need to maintain the trails better, I'm not trying to step on snakes!

trail is kept up and has plenty of shade for this hot weather.
