7.5 mile walk through the forest with almost full shade throughout hike. Completely flat. On our hike, we saw some squirrels, and an owl. Did not see any large wildlife (deer, etc.) Off the trail is swampy with cypress trees.

The trail is really nice, plenty of things to see, thousands of baby toads all over the place, bores, deers... The only problem is that it often gets flooded, completely or partially and it's really easy to lose sight of the trail. We got lost when the red flagging disappeared in a swamp and we were not able to finish it. A clear map of the trail would be nice and helpful here.

Enjoyable, easy walking trail through the largest intact expanse of old growth bottomland hardwood forest in the southeastern United States. Very large bald cypress and water tupelo trees everywhere, including several national champions. Wildlife abounds throughout the swampland...I've seen wild pigs, deer, snakes, owls, turtles and a marbled salamander. Not usually too crowded and worth the visit.
