Nice, easy nature walk. Was a bit muddy in certain areas which made it more of an obstacle course but overall nice walk to get in some outdoor and exercise time.

No Sandhill cranes, but nice little walk along a pretty easy trail. Probably brutal in warm weather with bugs, so in summer months be prepared.

Nice short walk through pine Woods and with lookouts to a bayou. Worth a quick stop. On the trail are quite a few good information boards.

This tract used to be part of a vast longleaf pine savanna. Now some parts are grown up as mixed forest and some restored to savanna, with a peaceful bayou winding through. Easy walking trail with one loop less than a mile, the other longer....More
