Loop

Added by John Maurizi

A loop hike through a quite pine forest. Great for hiking or trail running.

This loop hike is accessed from a short walk from the Bold Cypress Trail and the visitor center.  There are no views along this trail but the what I enjoyed was the pine needle covered trail itself.  The pine needles are like a soft carpet padding the trail.  I enjoy trailing running this loop more than hiking but either can be done.

Soft trails for running

This was a welcome change from the pavement and the trails were pretty soft! Was nice on the knees.
