Description

Like most of the other trails at William O'Brian, there are multiple ways to get on and off this trail. The starting location on the map sits at the crossroads of the Wedge Hill Savanna Trail, Inner Wetland Trail, and a park service road.

From there, head south and keep to the right at all of the intersections until you get to a tunnel under the railroad tracks to your left. At this point, go straight, and continue along the railroad tracks for a little bit until taking a turn east. In about a half mile, you'll come to the park road that leads back to the campground.

Flora & Fauna

Cattails, frogs, muskrats, and all sorts of songbirds can be seen all along this trail. It's near to the main camping area so expect to see a few dogs and their humans as well.
