“An easy day run on flat land and not crowded at all.”— Jim Pol
Backpacking and walk-in campsites: $7/night
The Yaupon Trail winds through a pine and palmetto forest, and is mostly a sandy singletrack trail with occasional muddy spots. It is a very easy and short trail. The trail crosses one park road with car traffic. The trail ends at 5-Mile Road, but the Logger's Loop Trail starts at the same point across the road.
The Logger's Loop Trail is a doubletrack trail that is very straight, being an old logger's road, but also very easy and level running surface. Numerous trails veer off this trail towards the eastern part of the Park. We made our way out 2.9 miles on this trail and returned to the parking lot via the Forest Trail.
