“An extension of the Eco Loop that offers more views the marshes and trees.”— Mike Gravley
The second half of the trail enters into the woods on the adjacent hill from the Eco Loop, meaning the trail does become a little narrower, rougher, and steeper. However, it is still easily doable for most people and offers up more lovely sights than if you were to stay on the shorter Eco Loop. At the end of this trail, it does meet right back up with the Eco Loop, so if someone is not feeling up for the longer Cattail Trail, they can take the shorter Eco Loop and still meet right up with you at the intersection.
