Nice trail! Lots of wildlife. I found an armadillo foraging and lots of birds were around. It took less than 20 min.

Nice trail to link together with others within the park if one would like to create a longer hike. Varied habitat consisting of palmettos, oaks, pines, and a swampy area. Photographed a water moccasin sunning on a felled tree near the swamp today. Interpretive markers appear along the trail (make sure to get a park map at the ranger station as the markers are numbered to correspond with the map). Still visible are cuts (sometimes called “cat faces”) made in some of the larger pines. These cuts were made to collect resin, which was used to make turpentine. Very shady trail with many pine roots. Not too buggy today, but this trail seems to have one of the heavier concentrations of deer flies when temps are warmer.

Beautiful. Very hot this summer. I think a portion of this trail is actually on the sun.
