Nice, bring bug spray! Very easy trail but lots of downed trees in trail path.

Really cool boardwalk component. A flat, green, bird haven.

We took our daughters (5 and 8) along for this hike. My husband measured it at 4.4 miles exactly (as the NP itself states). This was a nice hike along a well-worn, well-marked trail. We went the last weekend in February and saw hundreds of birds along the trail... especially in portions which bordered Cedar Creek. Robins, cardinals, and more! This was a great hike! The length is just perfect for medium-sized kiddos who want to explore the great outdoors. Take sunscreen, bug spray, and plenty of water! Snacks are a must too!

Beautiful trail in the old hardwood forests with upclose encounters with cypress trees and swamps

It's great that this area is protected but not exactly a scenic experience. Bottomland forest without much wildlife and no real views. If you like old growth hardwoods in the bottomland, this is the largest collection of that! If you don't know what that means, this trail will suck for you.
