Description

There is a large wooden sign saying "Woodlands Trail" and a small parking area at the trailhead. The trail is relatively flat and features many small canals where one can see swamp animals including gators, wild hogs, armadillo, and many birds. Along the way, visitors can pass by abandoned WWII ammunitions bunkers that are very cool to see. These bunkers are located about half way down the trail.

The trail is also open to horse use, so give the right of way to riders, and avoid stepping in horse droppings. Make sure you bring some bug spray in the summer!

Flora & Fauna

Armadillo, gators, water birds, wild boar, etc.
