“A straightforward boardwalk through alligator-visited swampland.”— Russell Hobart
The trail gives a great view of swamp life with many animals lazing in the sun just feet away below the boardwalk. Depending on the season, you may get great views of many swamp flowers typically isolated away from viewing. The trees are a little less thick compared to other trails in the area, which allows broader views and more direct sun.
When the trail terminates you have the choice to head back or continue on the Bayou Coquille Trail. This trail is handicap accessible.
Check the NPS website to see what flowers are blooming during your visit.
