Great forest with beautiful tall pines. At the start, you feel like you’re in a couple backyards, but the rest of the time, it’s pretty secluded. There are a couple bridges and boardwalks and changes of scenery. We spotted 3 snakes on our June hike. The 3 miles went by quickly here.

This is a gorgeous and well-maintained trail that keeps you in stands of tall pine throughout the hike. The path is wide and level. There are several nice boardwalks along the way that allow views of the surrounding wetlands. It's a great place to get in some wildlife viewing - saw a turtle, a few orioles, and even two nonvenomous snakes to the side of the trail. The trail looks ideal for bringing kids for a family walk. Bring some bug spray during the warmer months. The parking lot fits about 8 cars, so you might want to get there early for a spot.

Some parts of the trail are flooded out right now, but really pleasant walk and not crowded at all!

First to Review

Very nice hike. The trails are wide and very well maintained, they traverse though nice wetlands, old growth pines and open pitch pine forest. The trails don’t have signs with names, so It can be a little tricky to navigate the area. Also, the Plymton trail has one section where water has overflowed onto the trail, it is not deep but it can soak a good pair of shoes.
