A less traveled trail that follows a bayou north through thick forest.

Features River/Creek

Do not feed the alligators.

Description

This trail begins at a three-way intersection between it, Bluestem Trail, and Big Creek Bridge Trail. At this intersection, take the singletrack option north. The trail will stay close to the edge of a small bayou that winds its way through the center of the park to eventually meet up with Big Creek. The trail never crosses the bayou.

After just under three quarters of a mile, the trail will enter an old pipeline clearing and turn northeast away from the bayou. Keep an eye out for where the trail leaves the pipeline clearing on the right after only a few hundred feet. The trail will then follow the southern edge of a smaller bayou and head northeast until it meets the Sawmill Trail.
