This trail is a gentle and level hike, even if you are attempting the whole 23 mile trip. It's best to go when the weather is cooler (and the bugs are less plentiful). There are many natural spring pools, ponds, and bogs filled with cypress trees (and cypress knees) and pitcher plants. It gets pretty swampy so be prepared to get a little wet. Wildlife abounds here--I saw woodpeckers, golden eagles, lots of spiders and armadillos. Keep your eye out for snakes!
