Located in the southern end of the Turkey Creek Unit near the Staley Cabin, this trail, part of a larger system, is a popular double loop trail. The inner loop is 1.7 miles and the outer loop 2.4 miles. The trail meanders through a mixture of hardwoods and pines as well as several types of environments including Baldcypress swamps. As it passes Village Creek, you will see small floodplains. A guide is available at the trailhead.
