A very easy trail winding back and forth over the swamp on raised boardwalks. An old stone wall and split rail fence run through several of the side trails. The trail changes are well marked and there are several benches scattered about for just relaxing. The area had abundant deer, red tail hawks, ducks, geese and bluebirds. Very worth doing and looking forward to seeing this in warmer weather.
