Liked this trail a lot on this early spring afternoon. It’s a wide, easy to follow trail. Not crowded at all.

Quiet and peaceful. A very low impact hike with a wide open trail and very very few people.

Love this trail, have seen some great birds - bald eagle, osprey, tanangers, gold finches, deer, and nice views - but watch out for mosquitoes they are seriously the WORST here. Follow my instagram for more adventures @julie_journeys

HikingGreat!

There are two trails here that intersect at the parking lot. So you can extend another few miles if you want. Flat and easy. Wide - 4feet — trails in most places. Bathrooms closed but there are ports johns. Well marked but not necessary because trail is obvious. Beautiful views at the marsh and Indian landing.

It was a beautiful trail but way too many bugs! We were attacked for the last half of the trail through the loop.

41 ticks on me, at least 25 on my girlfriend. Not really worth it for the amount of ticks here

Ugly cut trees litter the area, not much nature... But we did see one osprey.

very nice trail. was easy to take our stroller for our daughter. we were able to see some osprey nests and some other wildlife. did end up finding a tick on the stroller when we got back to the car, but we were all good. may look into coming back when the visitor center is open and doing the white oak trail as well.

It’s worth it to go to the Indian Landing but most of the woods are dead and the trail was all gravel.

Beautiful spring walk...wide trails & enough hill to make it challenging for newbies. Osprey everywhere! Just a beautiful day out.

Very nice trail. But mid September the mosquitoes were in packs by the thousands. I know that sounds a bit rough but very true. Bug spray a must. It took away from the day. Bugs are in full force. Will only do this trail in colder months. Plenty of ticks bites also

Amazing trails, very well marked and mostly flat land, some inclines.. Indian landing is a great view of the Carmen's River.. Bring bug spray, lots of bugs!

First to Review

Black Tupelo Trail at the Wertheim Wildlife Refuge in Brookhaven. Easy out-and-back with loop at the end. World's smallest beach. Saw a few birds. Nice views of the salt marsh.
