Runner Notes

Watch for tree roots along this unpaved trail.

Description

This is an unpaved trail through swampland and mangroves. The trail has multiple small bridges to help get through the swamp. While you'll circle Boy Scout Lake, it will be difficult to get a clear view since it is surrounded by mangroves.

Flora & Fauna

Mangroves, pine, oaks, armadillos, snakes, raccoons, and tortoises can be found in this area.
