Description

The special aspect of this trail is the pine needle covered path. It makes for a great trail hike with little to no obstacles.

This loop hike is accessed by a short hike from the Bald Cypress Trail and the visitor center. There are no views along this trail, but what I enjoyed was the pine needle covered trail itself. The pine needles are like a soft carpet, padding the trail.
