“Well-marked trail with roots and muddy low areas.”— Ethan Cason
From Loop 1 continue straight on Loop 2. The trail is well marked and easy to follow. At 0.4 miles the trail begins to bear right and you can see houses from a neighborhood on your left. At 0.5 miles the trail turns right again and the houses are left behind you. The trail gets a little narrower as it slightly declines. At 0.7 miles you begin to get close to the swamps and bogs of Stumpy Lake. This area has an abundance of ferns and woodpeckers. Right at mile 0.9 you come to the intersection with Loop 1.
Shrubs - Wild Blueberry, Wax Myrtle, Cardinal Flower, American Holly, Ferns & more.
You are almost assured to see squirrels and many birds on this trail. Over 95 species of birds have been recorded at Stumpy Lake.
This section of the trail which goes further back than Loop 1 gives you a greater chance to see deer.
