Description

Starting from the Bridge behind the fort, this trail takes you to the Cockspur Lighthouse. This is an out and back trail. The substrate runs from sandy loam to coastal mud the closer you get to the lighthouse. Wax Myrtle and Cedar line the path and give way to coastal scrub as you approach the water. The ever narrowing peninsula gives way to the river as you near the end of the trail.

Flora & Fauna

Be warned, there are lots of mosquitos in warmer weather. Birds are abundant. Dolphins and the occasional manatee may be seen just offshore.
