“A half-mile boardwalk trail that connects to the Marsh Overlook Trail.”— Ryan Spr
Features Birding · River/Creek · Views · Wildlife
Most of the trail is either pavement or boardwalk, with excellent footing.
The Bayou Coquille Trail starts in hardwood forest then follows along a bayou. From this point, the habitat changes to a cypress-tupelo swamp and then becomes a freshwater marsh at the end of the trail.
Flora & Fauna
