Distance: 3.25 Miles
Duration: 1 hour, 48 minutes
Little watterdrop and I conqured this trail, which was very easy (paved, no drastic changes in elevation) except for the heat. There are few trees and much of the trail is black asphalt. As the second portion of the trail is a loop, once you head out there is no quick way to get back so becareful if you have little ones.
That being said, the hike itself was very pleasant. We saw a few other persons, but spent much of the day in relative solitude. We brought along our fishing gear for the first part of the hike and took a break to try and catch a bass. We didn't have much luck, but we caught several crawfish and the ducks were very friendly. The second part of the hike we combined with some geocaching.
We saw a good variety of wildlife: Crawfish, turtles, minnows, ducks, a hawk, a cardnial, and several squirls. We also identified some carnivor scat (probably a fox), racoon scat, and an owl pellet. 1013 cb.
