We clocked 7.54 miles on a beautiful fall day. I'm not sure why this is rated moderate. It's an easy walk along the Duck River and adjoining marshland. The marshland was completely dry yesterday and we hope to do this one again when there's been more rain. The trail portion along the river has several wooden benches. There is an overlook tower as you enter the marshland area and a large pavilion in the middle of the marshland. We stopped there for a picnic and only saw one other person. I rated this one 4 stars because we were hoping for something a little more difficult. The park is really nice, with a restaurant, lodge and cabins. I was told all of the lodging is pet friendly. There are also camp sites with benches, fire pits and picnic tables.

Awesome trail but muddy. Definitely bring waterproof shoes through the marsh area. Several different ecosystems and adventures throughout. Will definitely be doing it again.

Mostly flat trail. Great views of sinkholes. Lot's of scenic changes. Wetlands, wooded, fields, creeks, and a walk by the river. Great, easy hike.
