“A short but sweet flat run through a beautifully diverse park of forest and salt water marshland.”— Rory Nugent
Despite the fact the blazes are frequent and close together, each trail crosses over numerous other trails both marked and unmarked. If you're new to the park, it doesn't hurt to pause at trail crossings.
There are several trail maps floating around whether they are online or in the park. There are clear differences between each of them. The trail maps shared near the Cooper Environmental Center appear to be the most accurate.
There is also a swath of interesting trees and plants including black gum trees, red oak, green briar, red maple, swamp maple, pine trees, reeds, American white cedar, salt water and fresh water marsh.
