If you are up for a leisure stroll surrounded by some woodlands and a scenic marsh then this trail is for you! Not a lot of canopy, so I'd recommend an early evening walk as you can catch a great view of the sunset. Wildlife present included a deer, a variety of Egret birds, butterflies, other micilaneous birds and some fireflies. Not a trail for anyone looking for strenuous activity but perfect for a peaceful walk surrounded by nature.
