So the path runs along the road after you park at a shopping center. It is a nice level paved path. Downside is it really doesn’t go near the water. There was a brief boardwalk bridge, but mostly some wildflowers, brush and the backs of...More

The trail is wide, level, paved. Some is shady but most is not. We saw butterflies, bikers, joggers. Homes nearby are massive.

I've biked and ran along this trail, easily accessible from the nearby strip-mall. Easy to see a variety of wildlife here, including birds, small mammals and the occasional black snake. And the firefly show in the summer is unforgettable.

We found this to walk and get a little morning exercise. It was well used on a Sunday morning by joggers, walkers and people walking their dogs. Nice flat surface. Nothing exceptional but a nice trail.

We like to ride our bike slowly through the wetlands. We find it very pleasant and relaxing. However, the are many, many places where roots are pushing through the asphalt. Not only is this very bumpy, but could be a trip hazard to walkers.
