170 acres of protected wetland and forest; two trails, one 1.5 miles round trip and the other 3 miles round trip. Much signage exists identifying trees, animal life, and wetland environments. This trail can be quite muddy and you may want to wear protective clothing to prevent ticks and bug bites.

Parts of this track are great ... but overall this was EXTREMELY overgrown and VERY muddy. Glad I went in the morning and it wasn't muggy, otherwise bugs would be BAD. DO NOT WEAR SHORTS or SHORT SLEEVES unless you want to get ticks on you. The trail isn't marked at all, and because of overgrowth, it will require you to keep a keen eye on most of the track. The END OF THE TRAIL ... well ... not really sure what was considered the end, it got to an area that reached up to the power lines ... with "power line-type of views" ... but there is no END OF TRAIL signage per se. The over wetland bridge currently has a fallen tree on it.
