Need to Know
The park usually has an entrance fee of $2, but it is currently waived. Restrooms are out of order.
Not the best for trail running. It doesn't seem to be very well-traveled as the flora comes onto the trail quite a bit. The Banana spiders also cover the trail.
The Creek Bottom Trail (pink) offers an alternate approach to the Ravine and Bear Creek Trails. It starts at the restroom building and travels 0.3 miles through first a restored longleaf pine – wiregrass community, then along the sandy-bottom Bear Creek for which the tract is named, finally ending at the dam.
Flora & Fauna
Mosquitos were less of an issue than expected. There were a few ticks. Banana Spiders had taken over much of the trail. Plenty of mushrooms in the area. The park labels many trees and other flora.
