Very short and easy walk in the woods. Downside is there’s interstate to the left and highway to the right, plus airplanes flying constantly overhead. You can almost see some car on the roadways. Overall very well maintained and easily marked. The trail was beautiful and very green, with some wildflowers and bald cypress trees along the way.

Short and sweet, no ducks but several big spider webs.

About the same as the longer version but too short. Still a nice walk in the woods.

There are three entrances to Wood Duck Trail off the main park road. To do the short loop, go in the middle entrance and a short way down the trail you will have to go left or right. Either way will give you a short loop.
