Features Birding · Wildlife

Stay on boardwalks and trails. Food is not allowed on the trails. Wild animals should never associate humans with food. Do not feed animals. Leave plants and animals as you find them. Do not pick flowers or dig up plants. Do not tease or try to catch animals, insects or reptiles. Dogs are only allowed in the parking lot on leash.

Description

From the parking lot, jump on Christmas Road and take it down until it dead-ends at the intersection of a few trails. Continue more or less straight on the trail marked as Ring Levee.

Soon the trail becomes a raised boardwalk and you get a great view of these lowlands. The further you get along the trail, the more you enter thick cypress forests featuring trees at least 6' wide at the base.

Flora & Fauna

Black and yellow garden spiders (not banana spiders), owls, hogs, alligators, and corn snakes and tons of other swamp critters.
