This little destination packs a large adventure. Fishing and Kayaking are just the beginning of what you can do here when there are multiple paths through the trees to explore and lose yourself in!

At the end of River Road Park Rd. there is a small pier to fish off of or to just lounge on. On both the right and left side of the pier there are trails in the forest to wander through. The trails on the right walk you on the edge of the water and open up to a large field of wild grass. This is where I set up my tripod and threw a ND Filter on my camera to take some long exposures of the water washing up into the grass. The path to the left takes you through the marshes and to a large opening overlooking the marsh where you can often capture stunning wildlife photography! Since this path is less traveled there is much more growth around the trail itself. This was perfect for taking more nature shots. This location is not one to miss especially when the sun is setting.
