Description

Start the loop on the Purple Trail, the trail bisects a meadow and loblolly pine forest. Don't forget to take the two spurs. To the east, a short boardwalk offers a view of Slough's Gut Marsh and Beach Cove. It's not uncommon to see turkey and deer on the loop in the center of the meadow.

Once crossing back over Cedar Neck Road, the trail descends into young, mixed maritime forest. At the observation blind is the Green Trail. Take a right to continue the Loop, left to go directly back to the parking lot, or straight to get to the Red Trail.
