Things to Consider; 1.) No dirt paths, but a very nice long bridge and nice walking paths at the fork. (Left goes about another mile to get to another dock to look over the water) 2.) A nice place for an after/pre dinner stroll. (Located right behind the waterpark) 3.) About a 40 min walk round trip give or take. 4.) Drink water before you go or bring a bottle to have. 5.) No shade on bridge but path has trees covering. 6.) Bring binoculars to see wildlife. 7.) Great for kids but be careful to make sure they don't fall off in any water. 8.) Dogs are aloud. 9.) Parking in summer season can get full but usually there is a spot. 10.) Make sure your car windows are up and car is locked b/c unfortunately we do not live a respectful area.

Nice to experience but would only recommend for walking. This was listed as a road biking destination but even with a young child this is way too abbreviated on a bike. If you are in the area it would make for a nice level stroll along the creek.

Visit here from Georgia twice a year and always walk this. It is pretty, often quiet and good for reflection!

Great hike for children. They enjoyed reading the markers that explained all the trees/plants we saw as we walked.

Nice, easy walk. It is paved or wood decking the entire trail. Views are limited to marshland. Recommend seeing it if you’re nearby.
