Mosquitos and deer flies and a lot of mud. Be careful not to go anywhere from 2 weeks after a rain.

Was a very good trail that I ran and was recommended from the park employee at the park store. The trail at the time of fall/winter/ before spring, alot of brown and trees without leaves. I bet during spring and summer it's gorgeous! Was also able to get a National parks passport while at the park store and was taught how it is used. Pretty excited and ready to use it!

This is a gem in the forest. Very well marked, with maps at the trailhead. The cypress trees are impressive, especially when you reach the cypress grove. We saw only one other group. Restrooms at the trailhead are very clean.

It was a long loop for a beginner, but it's not a hard trail to walk. There were benches along the path and beautiful places by the creek and slough where you could sit, rest, and snack.

Beautiful, engaging trail. Very maintained and marked with informative signs about the various tree types. The cypress trees are gorgeous. A very wide and well-traveled path better suited for those looking for a family stroll rather than a strenuous hike.

Really nice, well marked trail. The mosquitos about ate us alive though! Would like to do it again in cooler weather. The bamboo gives this trail a kind of creepy feeling. Really liked it.

This is another easy trail to follow, nothing strenuous but very relaxing. There are several old bridges to enjoy and take pictures. This is good for families with kids or a quick get way for you to relax.
