A short trail from the Park Amphitheater to Elm Lake Loop along a small creek. Bridges make crossing the creek easy.

Karl W

Overview

The park has been known to flood after heavy rains, so check for closures before making the trip out!
Features: Birding — Lake — Wildlife
Dogs: Leashed

Description

This trail begins at the northern end of the parking area off of Park Road. Head left/west to the small theater. Then enter the forest and turn south.

The trail will head south along the small creek for about a half mile before making a sharp turn to the north and west. It will head west along the creek again for another half mile. Here the creek forks and you'll cross a bridge over the southern fork.

The trail then turns north and crosses the other fork, also over a bridge. Then it is less than a quarter mile to Elm Lake Loop. You'll pop out onto Elm Lake Loop just east of the small restrooms.

Flora & Fauna

Alligators are very common in the park.
