Visited with the family for a walk in the woods. Trail markings are sparse and confusing. Be sure to look under the numbered posts along the way for interesting nature facts. Great playground for kids. Great programs during the week - Amphibians and Reptiles.

Enjoyed our afternoon here; however I found the trail markings and signage often misleading or nonexistent. Map seemed clear but really wasn't. Still quite a few nice surprises along the way.

At this point it is a decent place to go for a walk. Looks like they are adding more as they go along in terms of making it more than a walk through the typical southern Alabama pine tree forest.
