Nice easy trail. This trail offers several opportunities for wildlife watching and wildflowers. Watch out for the alligators in the marsh areas.

Enjoyable. Part of trail is along the street (Booo!), but remainder of trail was through wooded areas and pleasant. I liked that the bayou overlook was on a wooden platform so I was elevated and the view was good.

The area is beautiful, although be warned, much of the hiking "trail" runs along the side of the road through the park. But there is a short loop that winds through some beautiful shady areas along the bank of the bayou. If you want to see an alligator, it's a great place to check out. Off of the fishing pier and over the marsh, you can also see a beautiful sunset.
