Open Tuesday through Sunday 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM.
Pets, smoking, alcohol, motorized vehicles, and open carry of firearms are prohibited.
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.
