Nice a cleared out. It was muddy and water on the trail a bit. But logs for you to walk on to get over it. We saw a few deer on the hiker’s loop.

Nice hike. Well maintained trail. Some muddy parts but no big deal. Surprisingly dry for rain a couple of days ago.

Great trail! Saw so many native flora and gorgeous wetland ecosystems. Gets a little muddy at parts so wear shoes that you’re not afraid of getting a little muddy! I love this hike.

Nice trail! Don't have to worry about bugs now (November) so it's perfect. Just put Fontainebleau campground in your GPS to get to the start of the trail, confused us at first. From there the trail begins as one, forks off where one direction is the Sugar Mill trail (1.6 mi) and the Gator Marsh boardwalk (short), and the other direction is the Cane Bayou trail. Didn't see much wildlife besides a couple birds and butterflies, but it is late fall and the trails are fairly trafficked (on a Saturday at least). Overall great day :)

We came through after Hurricane Zeta and a cold snap. A little debris. They were doing some clean up. Couldn't get all the way to bayou. Bugs were not a problem. Nice walk through the woods. Early in the morning the wildlife was active.

Great, easy path. Bring bug spray for the mosquitoes. Most of the orb weavers are gone for the season. Good, clear, packed-dirt path
