I had been hiking here before but never reviewed it. If you want to walk the biggest loop(2 miles,) follow the red trail in, pick up the blue, pick up the white, then rejoin with the red again. You can also do shorter loops with only the red or blue. The red trail heading into the other trails is essentially a little “farm road.” There are benches, it’s flat, it’s also unfortunately mostly in the hot sun. Then you get to the forest and sweet sweet shade. There are also pretty amazing views of marshland. There is a place to launch kayaks. There are wooden bridges and wooden seating. I saw a snake and a big turtle. The trails are well maintained and well marked with flares. Other than it being hot and buggy on the first stretch, this was a pleasure. Make sure and climb the observation tower!
