Super easy trail with plenty of boardwalks. Lots of butterflies/moths and their caterpillars. Take the Palmetto Interpretive Trail that joins the Ottine. W Lots of swamp!

Super easy trail with some nice benches to watch the lake. Takes you by a church. Watch for snakes as we saw several in the lake. May 2018

I will keep the 5 star rating going. It's beautiful. Easy easy for those that mountain bike. However, bridge after bridge after bridge is pretty cool. Watch out for snakes. My wife ran one over.....don't tell her but it was hilarious with legs up above handlebars.

Very well maintained, quite, and unique. Take your time and enjoy. Did almost all of this trail within a loop plus connectors that we did in November. Some day, I would like to see it in it's wet season.

In Palmetto State Park, this trail is at tent camping grounds which includes picnic tables, outdoor grills, playground, paddle boat and kayak rentals. Restrooms are located at the trailhead. The area is nicely maintained. Hike/walk is short and flat.

A great trail for a beginner or for families. Six foot wide gravel trail and nice bridges. I walked it and never saw a soul.

Nice easy trail, good for walking your dog or enjoying the outdoors with your family. Trail is crushed granite and wooden decking in marsh areas.

Quick easy hike. The No Trespassing sign posted on the Little Hill Baptist Church does not apply to the trail.
