Beautiful cypress swamp!
Very scenic trail, great for young hikers. Trail is wide and well marked. The boardwalk in to the trees is well worth the hike.
Very beautiful scenery, and the boardwalk was a really nice feature. The hike itself is easy and you can extend your hike by following the signs to the Little black slough.
I love coming to Heron pond. It's right down the road!
