Very easy, well-marked trail. I hiked it with my 73 yr-old father, 8 yr-old daughter and our dog. Great for this, though be careful of alligators near the water with your dog. Also, parts of the trail aren't shaded and it can get hot, so bring water. Lots of places to stop and sit. A very nice easy hike. Main trail is marked red. Short trail is yellow. Don't miss the cypress forest boardwalk just off the main trail. It's really neat. You likely won't see another hiker.

This was a nice, sandy trail. A good walk in the woods. It is marked with yellow for the short loop trail and red for the longer trail. It starts near Group Shelter 2. There were several benches if you wanted to rest. I saw a large woodpecker and alot of animal tracks. I took the shorter loop. Afterward, I stopped and had a picnic lunch and took some pictures of the lake. It was an easy trail and well maintained.

Just as described, this trail transverses several types of vegetation in a short distance. The turkey oaks on a sandy ridge and the cypress swamp could hardly be more different. This is a very easy morning walk and good for children.

Super easy! I ended up going around three times and got back just in time for a beautiful sunset over the lake :)
