The intuitive thing to do when you arrive here is to walk around the boardwalk, indicated in red on the map, which takes just a few minutes unless you want to stop and read all the signs. However I also saw some people take off in different directions (none of which are indicated on your map). I did not find any signs with info on what there is outside of the boardwalk. Having said that, it was a really nice place, it is elevated (probably so you can see birds in trees and whatnot) but I had hoped for more of a hike.

This trail is actually called the Red Spring Boardwalk. It's very popular for weddings and Photography shoots ( both require BLM permits).
