“An easy loop trail that passes sloughs, marshes, and groves of oak.”— Eric Ashley
On the left, a narrow perennial pond makes a great spot to look for turtles warming themselves in the sun. At the north end, the trail circles around to cross over Franklin Boulevard to border a marshy depression on the other side. To the south, the nearby Boardwalk Trail can be seen departing from the upper parking area (the quarter-mile boardwalk makes a worthwhile addition, especially when sandhill cranes are present). From there, the trail circles back over the road to return to the Visitor Center.
