Head through a large wetland complex with an opportunity to explore the Louisville Swamp.

This easy loop is more for exploring the wetland ecosystem, called the Louisville Swamp, and its wildlife than for the exercise. Habitants include beavers, raptors, and waterfowl – bring binoculars and take your time.

Be Aware Of Water Levels!

Great trail with varied terrain and beautiful sights. However, be aware that you cannot cross a certain part of the trail (at mile 3.5 out of 4.5) if water levels are high. My 4.5 mile hike turned into 7 miles because of this! That aside, the trail felt like an escape from the city and I would definitely go back again.
