Neat way to see 2 eco sysytems on one hike. Start in woodlands and go though wetlands at the turn, assuming you start in the parking area. Several people doing some bird watching, no luck with tortoises for me. Pretty well marked and comes close to some camp sites.

Great trail with little use. Most times you can walk this trail and not see another person.
