Park at the gate and walk. It's mostly a boardwalk over a small swamp in the middle. We saw lizards, a duck, and butterflies. Lots of wildflowers including the carnivorous pitcher plants that we enjoyed learning about.

Me and my 11 year old hiked this trail yesterday. It was great. He enjoyed seeing all the carnivores plants along the path. Very well kept.
