Short flat interpretative loop trail that has 24 stations that coincide to a guide map that explains different features of the forest, the trail, the park and the area. Starts from a gravel parking lot along a white sand path and travels counter-clockwise over boardwalks and short bridges for 0.6 miles.

Great for a beginner or children. Careful on slippery boards. Had a great time. Very quick walk. Nice trail.

Very easy, flat, and very short (0.5 mile) walk. This looks to be stroller friendly. Lots of tree coverage. There are several sections that are boardwalks or very well maintained gravel path. Saw a black snake sunning on the path and lots of bugs (only when slowed down for the snake). Super easy little trail that would be fine for little kids. If you are a real hiker, not any satisfaction from it. I hike a good bit, but this was fine for what I needed at the time.

This is a short, easy and nice trail with a lot of tree cover. Access is from the first parking lot. I combine this with the Crabtree Lake trail for a good workout.

Short flat 0.6 mile interpretative trail, more of a walk than a hike. There are 24 stations that coincide to a guide that tells you about the trail, the forest and surrounding park. We used this as a warm-down after our trek around the lake.
