Trail is primarily sugar sand.
This short, mainly unshaded trail begins at the visitor center and moves northeast over the Addison Canal. There are a number of overlooks along the trail that allow runners to look down over the canal. Then, the trail turns south and crosses a bridge over the canal before connecting to the Biodiversity Loop Trail
, which enables runners to loop back west to the visitor center.
