Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The West River Swamp Trail is one of three trails in this book within the boundaries of General Coffee State Park. The trail follows blue blazes northbound on a 1.4-mile in-and-out route along the Seventeen Mile River, heading northwest past Dan and Jake Lakes.

Although the lakes sound inviting, dogs must be kept on a leash at all times. This is for their protection since the swamp has numerous poisonous snakes (including the water moccasin or cottonmouth, native to this area). The park is no place for the pooch to be wandering aimlessly."
