In order to access this area, you will have to pay an admission free of $5.00 per vehicle (limit 2-8 people per vehicle); $4.00 per single occupant vehicle; $2.00 pedestrians, bicyclists, extra passengers, or passengers in vehicle with holder of Annual Individual Entrance Pass. The trailhead begins across the street from the lake, beside the bathrooms. The route crosses the road toward the end of the loop and follows the lake for less than a hundred yards. This is not my favorite of the three Fred Gannon Rocky Bayou State Park nature trails, but it’s still a pretty little loop. The forest canopy of Laurel Oaks, Turkey Oak, Sand Pine, Eastern Red Cedar, Virginian Juniper, Southern Magnolia casts dappled light across the path with an undergrowth of Saw Palmetto, Sparkleberry and Deer Moss. This short little nature loop is a perfect trail for people of all ages and skill levels. If you want to explore more in the area, the Rocky Bayou and Sand Pine Nature Trails are only a 5-minute drive away in the park.

Super easy trail with numerous spots to sit if needed. Trail is marked by numerous signs showing indigenous species of plants and how they help the wildlife. Trail begins and near a kids park inside Rocky Bayou State park so you do have to pay an entrance fee. Restrooms are also close by

Very easy trail. A pot of informational placards describing vegetation. Restrooms conveniently located at the end. Trail is a half circle/loop.

Parking at the start or end of the trail loop. A very easy hike, flat, a good chance you'll see some wildlife (hawk, deer, squirrels). Signage with pix of nearby trees & plants. A lot of road noise the back 1/3 of the trail (nearby SR20), otherwise quiet. A steady pace and you can walk the entire trail in around 11-12 minutes. some exposed roots the final 1/3 but not too bad.
