An easy walking trail that offers beautiful foliage in the fall.

When arriving at the park drive to Parking Lot 4 to park, this will give you the closest access to the trail head. Start heading Southeast along the Molly Mitchell Trail and continue on it until you reach the Shuttle Trail and take a left. You will only remain on this trail for a very short segment until you reach the Otter Point Trail and take another left. Continue walking along this trail until you reach the Deer Island Trail and this will take you right back to the start of your hike. It's a nice, easy little loop for an early morning walk. I visited on a Sunday and it was relatively empty so the perfect little nature getaway.
