Natural areas, ponds, observation platforms, bogs, oxbows along Cypress Creek, and woods all add their own bit of adventure to this hike. These varied habitats create homes for small mammals, butterflies, birds, frogs, and snakes. Large trees include bald cypress, maple, elm, and magnolia, along with others to furnish shade and nesting areas for birds. This is a good hike for families with young children.
