I took the trail to where it intersected with the Discovery Trail and followed it to the visitor Center, which was 2.5 miles. I walked the road back to Chucalissa around 1.5 miles and it was nice as well.

There is a foul odor, that may be wastewater treatment, or the oil refinery.

Trails are well marked and easy to navigate. there are a few trees and branches across the trail from last week's storm, but not difficult to navigate around.
Wear bug spray and long pants. Lots of Virginia Creeper, which can cause a rash if you rub up against it.
