Hiked on a Wednesday morning and saw no one, guessing some people may be turned off because of the very bumpy two mile gravel road on the way to the trail head. We saw no one except a ranger pulling in as we were leaving. Lots of ferns growing along the trails and some covered the trails, yet the white diamond markers and nature info signage about the birds and wildlife kept us on track. We thought it was beautiful and we learned a lot about the native bird population which were singing to us. Our GPS gave us 2.2 miles. We added another mile and a half on a side trail as there are several trails that connect at the same parking lot.

Check out the Marienville ATV/Bike trail while in the area. The trail is not listed on this App but is a great ride! Trail head is a few miles (about 3) north of the ranger station on route 66. You can pick up a map at the ranger station. Watch out for ATV's. I recommend riding against the ATV traffic for safety sake. The trail has a nice mix of short climbs and downhill with a bit of technical ride due to rocks and roots.

Pretty easy ride on forest roads closed to motor vehicles. There are a couple options besides the loop and the road coming in can extend the ride. Would bet a sunset ride would be enhance the scenery through the swamp. Worth the drive to get here.
