“Meander through the upper reaches of the wetlands where you'll find plenty of wildlife and beautiful spring blooms.”

This trail connects the Wetlands Trail
with the High Trail
. You can start your journey on either end. This trail is partially doubletrack and partially singletrack, and along the way the tread varies between grass and dirt paths. You travel across the northwestern reaches of the wetlands where you'll have plenty of opportunity for wildlife and bird viewing. There were signs of coyotes, wild hogs, as well as other wetland and forest creatures when we visited. This trail is just a short outing, but can be a bit daunting depending on the the water level in the area. When mapping this trail, a 30 yard section in the middle of the trail was impassable due to high water. Especially when the route is dry, this route overall is a nice trail that follows the edge of the upper wetlands.
